Midtown Fire! Tesla’s Recording Space Burns

Fom the Sac Fire Department: Sacramento- This morning at 01:46 AM Sacramento firefighters responded to reports of an apartment fire located at 1012 27th Street between J and K Streets, in midtown Sacramento. Initial fire crews arrived under five minutes and encountered, heavy fire and smoke from the rear of downstairs and upstairs apartments..

Fllames from the roof of the two story Victorian apartment complex ignited a second building directly behind the complex. Firefighters had a difficult time accessing the attic of the second building due to its thick walls and ceiling. This resulted in the fire quickly spreading throughout the attic of the second building. The building was later determined to be a recording studio used by the rock group TESLA. It took three alarms which totaled more than eighty six firefighters, over one hour to gain control and extinguish the two fires.

There were no firefighter or civilian injuries; however two cats died and five residents were displaced as a result of the fire. The displaced residents are being accommodated by Red Cross. The cause of this fire is currently under investigation.

Governing Midtown

By William Burg photos by Scott Duncan

When compared to the ongoing downtown crisis on K Street, Midtown Sacramento is a success story. But does Midtown owe its success to a lack of attention from government, as some assume, or has the city responded to Midtown’s needs in more effective ways? Read more »
