Fire breaks out at Esmeralda’s Tacos; EPD investigating
EUREKA- A fire breaks out at Esmeralda’s Tacos on Grotto Street in Eureka. A witness told us he heard a loud noise, ran out side and saw the flames. Immediately he grabbed a pot of water and attempted to put the blaze out. The incident took place around 9:45pm Tuesday night. Humboldt Bay Fire forced entry into the building and found nothing on fire, but did smell something similar to gasoline. They tell us the two witnesses knocked out the majority of the blaze.
Police are still investigating how the fire started. However, fire officials did find broken glass and a large rock found on the ground, which may be part of how the fire got started.
