Fire at Apple’s Cupertino campus claims $2 million
No one was hurt in Tuesday’s fire, which broke out at 10 p.m. in a building on Valley Green Drive across from Apple’s main campus on Infinite Loop. Smoke from the fire and water damage from putting out the blaze caused most of the damage, according to fire officials. It took fire crews about two and a half hours to extinguish the flames.
The fire started accidentally, according to the Santa Clara County Fire Department. Fire captain Daron Pisciotta attributed the cause to construction work being done on the building, where workers were welding on the building’s roof.
