The blaze partially involved the 5 unit apartment complex next to the business and the residents were evacuated without any reported injuries. The fire is under investigation by Compton Fire Arson Investigations. It appears that the location was being used for shelter by one or more homeless individuals. The displaced residents from the apartment complex were assisted by family members and the Red Cross.
