ARDEN-ARCADE - Sacramento Metro firefighters battled a 3-alarm commercial fire Sunday afternoon that sent massive plumes of smoke into the sky.
The fire broke out around 1 p.m. at a vacant building formerly occupied by a sporting goods retailer at Watt Ave and Arden Way.
More than 90 firefighters helped to contain the fire, as the roof of the building collapsed, said Sacramento Metro Fire spokesperson Rashawn Fulcher.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but firefighters said the vacant property has a history of problems with squatters.
Arden Way to Hurley Way was blocked off for several hours.
