Fire rips through local garden nursery business

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Major damage Monday morning, after flames overtake a local business.

Fire broke out at the Evergreen Nursery on the 13000 block of Carmel Valley Road Sunday night.

Neighbors say they saw flames, and heard popping noises. Firefighters rushed to put out the blaze, but had some trouble bringing in water.

The 30-year-old business was apparently built before the area had roads and fire hydrants are hard to come by.

Evergreen's owner says the damage will also affect his six other stores.

"All our nurseries will be open, but we won't know what the other hand is doing. Our computers are not gonna work," Mark Bollins said.

Investigators believe an electrical short is to blame for the fire.
