Early morning fire shut down Sprouts market

Refrigerator sparks small fire in grocery store on San Antonio Road

Sprouts Farmers Market on San Antonio Road had to shut down temporarily after a small fire ignited in one of the market’s refrigerators early Friday morning, July 6.

A passerby called 911 just before 4 a.m. to report that smoke was billowing out of the Sprouts building. Firefighters arrived shortly afterward to find heavy smoke inside the market, but the fire had already been mostly extinguished by the market’s sprinkler system. Fire officials say the building was unoccupied when they arrived, and they believe there were no injuries as a result of the fire.

The exact cause of the fire is still being investigated, and fire officials could not immediately give an estimate on the the cost of the damage.

Following the fire, Sprouts was required to close temporarily in order for Santa Clara County health inspectors to check on the extent of the smoke damage.

No estimate was given for when Sprouts will reopen.
