At 3:12 p.m. June 9 a fire broke out at a chemical company in an industrial area of Anaheim, which quickly escalated to a 5-alarm blaze. One employee of the business and two Fullerton firefighters suffered minor injuries. Hazmat crews responded to the scene because the 30,000-squarefoot warehouse contained many chemicals and cleaning supplies. Just before 5 p.m., the fire was contained.
