Firefighters battled a massive fire at warehouse early Friday morning in Redlands that prompted the closure of part of the 10 Freeway.
The blaze, on West Lugionia Avenue near California Street, was reported just before 5:30 a.m.
Amazon’s big-rig trucks caught fire as well. Fire officials said the facility was the online retailer’s but that has not been confirmed.
