CAMBRIA, Calif. - Firefighters responded to a commercial building fire that broke out in Cambria Saturday afternoon.

The fire was reported around 1:05 p.m. on the 4100 block of Burton Drive near Main Street at a culinary shop known as A Matter of Taste.

A witness at the scene told NewsChannel 12 it appears a truck crashed into the side of the commercial building before becoming engulfed in flames. The flames then appear to have spread to the building.

CHP confirmed that a single vehicle crashed into the building before the fire broke out.

Firefighters said the truck sheared a natural gas line during the crash, sparking the fire and causing it to spread rapidly.

First responders were on scene tackling the fire and searching for victims. San Luis Obispo City Fire sent a truck and Battalion Chief to assist with the effort. Morro Bay also sent a ladder truck and Chief Officer to the scene.

Officers reported Main Street was closed at Tamson Drive.

It is unclear how many people were injured in the incident.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
