The firefighter injured in last week's fire in Danville has been released from the hospital, according to San Ramon Fire Protection District Chief Richard Price.
"He's going to be just fine," Price said. "Everything came back negative on him -- he's going to be sore, that's it."
He said the fire department has turned the case over to the Danville Police department. That's after
Equipment for growing marijuana was discovered in the wreckage.
The fire, which was reported by a driver on Interstate-680 at 5:28 a.m. at 923 El Pintado Road, caused an estimated $750,000 in damage to the structure and was a total loss.
Police units were initially dispatched to aid with traffic control while firefighters swarmed the area, but detectives were later called in after the equipment was found. Grow lights, air conditioning units, fans, and filtration units that police said are commonly associated with indoor marijuana growing operations were all found inside.
The 3,700-square-foot house did not appear to be the primary residence for its owners, and nobody was home when the fire started, a San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District spokeswoman said.
As of earlier today, arson investigators were continuing work to determine the cause of the fire. Ultimately the investigation will be turned over to a narcotics enforcement team.
Video of the early morning fire is available on San Ramon Valley Fire's website.
