An early morning fire ripped through a commercial building in Carmichael Monday.
The two-alarm fire started after midnight on Marconi Avenue near Fair Oaks Boulevard.
The businesses in the building include a spa, psychiatrist’s office and an insurance agency.
The building was charred by the fire, and further destroyed when firefighters had to cut through the roof to make sure the fire was out.
One business owner had been there for 25 years and said, “This is the second time around for me, my family home burned to the ground. My co-worker has had his house burn too. you just go numb and then you deal with it how you can.”
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
