An historic home in downtown Mesa goes up in flames.  Fire Captain Ken Hall with Mesa Fire and Medical says a home built in the 30’s or 40’s that was turned into an auto parts storage unit has been nearly destroyed by a raging fire.  Neighbors saw the flames raging from the home and called for help.  The fire was

beginning to spread and nearly jumped to a next door neighbor’s home before firefighters arrived.  Firefighters contained the fire to the back of the house.  No one was home at the time and there were no injuries.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
