Video: Massive fire burns through historic north hangar in Tustin
A massive fire broke out at the historic Tustin hangars in Orange County Tuesday morning, prompting a large response from fire crews.
The three-alarm fire was reported around 1 a.m. at the north hangar near Valencia Avenue and Armstrong Road, according to the Orange County Fire Authority.
It was so large, firefighters were using a helicopter, as well as a ground assault, to try to put out the flames that consumed the structure that stands 17 stories high. Video:
It is one of the largest wooden structures ever built, and it is one of two air hangars built in 1942 at the Marine Corps Air Station Tustin. The historic landmark has been featured in several shows and films, including “Pearl Harbor,” “Star Trek” and “Austin Powers.” Video:
