KTVU News in San Francisco reports:

"An 80,000 square foot San Jose warehouse was rocked by explosions Thursday, sending a massive fireball into the early morning sky."

The warehouse is located at East Julian and North 28th streets.

All residents close to the fire have already been evacuated, while firefighters are watching out for an area on West Court which is close to Julian Street.

A shelter-in-place order has been made.

The fire has reached the point where flames have also reached neighboring businesses.

ABC 7 Local in San Francisco warns drivers to stay safe:

"The CHP is warning nearby drivers to roll up windows and turn off their air input. The northbound and southbound Julian on and off ramps to Hwy 101 have been closed.

The fire has forced the closure of Rocketship Discovery Prep on Wooster Avenue for the day."

Fortunately there have been no reports of injuries.

"I am glad there are no injuries but that's a very frightening situation to be in," says San Francisco resident, Katie Adler.

The warehouse that has caused the five-alarm fire belongs to Vintage Roof and Tile.
