Fire officials are attributing an early morning commercial structure fire on South Weatherlow Street to a warming fire built by transients inside the unoccupied building.

According to details released by the Susanville City Fire Department the call came in at around 3:20a.m. Thursday morning and firefighters from the City, CAL-Fire, Susan River Fire Protection District, CDCR Fire and Janesville Fire Protection District all responded to a commercial structure fire at 63 South Weatherlow Street.
