BERKELEY -- A small fire that broke out on the roof of a Berkeley business sent one man to the hospital Tuesday evening, according to the Berkeley Fire Department.
The fire broke out on a makeshift deck above Royal Robbins, an outdoor clothing and supply store located at 841 Gilman Street. Fire crews responded to the scene shortly after 6:45 p.m. and quickly extinguished the blaze.
One man suffered burns and was transported to a San Francisco burn center, said Berkeley Fire Chief Avery Webb. It was not immediately clear if the man is an employee.
The fire was contained to the deck of the building and the cause remains under investigation.
