Saturday’s southwest Santa Rosa warehouse fire that spread from business to business also damaged 34 vehicles, including classic cars, race cars, excavators and catering trucks, causing as much as $3 million in damage, according to a fire prevention officer. The structure loss on the West Robles Road property was estimated at $2 million but that total was expected to jump another $1 million because of extensive damage and destruction involving six businesses and the numerous vehicles, said Cyndi Foreman, fire prevention officer for Rincon Valley and Windsor fire agencies. The cause of the two- alarm afternoon blaze remained under investigation Wednesday. But six video cameras captured where the fire started — a woodworking business — and its spread, Foreman said. The 5-acre property housed large warehouses busy with a variety of commercial businesses. There were no fire alarms on the building, which dates back to the mid 1900s, Foreman said.
