Firefighters Battle 2-Alarm Fire At Georgia-Pacific Paper Mill In San Leandro, California
SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (From news reports) -- Firefighters battled a massive 2-alarm fire early Monday, Nov. 9, that erupted at a Georgia-Pacific paper mill in San Leandro.

Authorities said approximately 50 firefighters responded to a structure fire at the mill late Sunday with the blaze elevated to 2 alarms at 11:14 p.m.

Arriving firefighters were forced by the intensity of the fire to take a defensive approach to the firefight as the blaze raged into early Monday morning.

Georgia Pacific officials said the fire was burning in an outdoor storage area.

Shortly after 6:30 a.m., Georgia-Pacific wrote on Twitter that the fire was out, and the "facility expects to start back up this morning as scheduled. Thanks to all first responders who helped."
