A Concord apartment building under construction at Galindo and Concord Boulevard caught fire, quickly grew to 3-alarms, and was later declared a total loss after burning for much of Tuesday morning.
The fire was reported shortly before 1 a.m. with bystanders stunned by its magnitude and the intensity of its heat. Firefighters ultimately declared the $55 million structure a total loss.
Firefighters responded to the site where the second phase of the Renaissance Apartments were under construction and found the structure burning heavily. Currently, Galindo St, Willow Pass Rd, Concord Blvd and Clayton Rd all closed as firefighters mop up.
