Escondido Fire officials are continuing to mop up after this morning’s fire at the abandoned Talone’s Meat Market at 559 N. Hale Avenue in Escondido.  Power has been restored to the affected area.  The Sprinter will be reopening shortly.  A short section of Hale Avenue will remain closed between the railroad tracks and Tulip Street as the mop up continues.

The Police Department is optimistic that several trespassers who were feared to have been trapped in the building managed to escape, based on reported sightings of them.  Fire officials will conduct a search on Friday to confirm no other persons were in the building. Until the structural integrity of the building is assured and the remaining hot spots are extinguished, no one will be permitted to enter the building.

Escondido Fire was supported by neighboring fire agencies from Carlsbad, Deer Springs, Oceanside, San Diego, San Marcos, Valley Center, and Vista. At the peak of the fire, over 96 firefighters were on scene.
