VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) - The first indication to customers and employees of a Southern California market that something was wrong was when firefighters showed up.

The San Bernardino County Fire Department says it received a fire alarm activation call Thursday about the same time a paramedic crew reported smoke coming from the roof of the Pueblo Ranch Market in Victorville.

A Fire Department statement says arriving units evacuated about 100 people who were unaware of any problem.

The fire was found to be in a second-floor electrical box and had set off a single sprinkler head, which checked the fire until firefighters could bring hose lines in and fully extinguish it.

No one was injured, and structural damage was estimated at $10,000.
