A weekend fire caused an estimated $1.2 million in damages to a two-story branch/call center of the $3.4 billion California Coast Credit Union in San Diego, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

When firefighters arrived at the Kearny Mesa branch on Ruffin Road at 9:26 p.m. on Saturday, they saw flames shooting from the building’s roof. Though fire crews initially entered the building to fight the fire, conditions quickly became dangerous and they resumed their efforts to douse the flames from outside, the SDFRD said.
