Blaze Causes $1m in Damages to Inland Empire Landscaping Company

A fire could be seen for miles as it raged at a Grand Terrace landscaping business Monday.

At least $1 million worth of damage was caused to equipment in the blaze, which started at around 5:45 p.m.

It took San Bernardino County Fire Department an hour to knockdown the fire, which caused a roof collapse at the 40,000 square feet Hunter Landscaping building, but resulted in no major injuries.

Several explosions occurred during the fire, fuelled by the gasoline tanks and tires of the 21 vehicles stored at the facility. The cause of the blaze is still unknown.

"It's not a good thing for a lot of our employees for sure, but we'll take care of them. Hunter Landscaping takes care of its people. We'll make sure they're working, " Hunter Landscaping's Thomas Elder said, "They're not going home any time soon... we'll get a bunch of brand new trucks and brand new equipment really quick."
