A fire at a convenience store in unincorporated El Sobrante this morning has been extinguished and may have been caused by an electrical malfunction, a Contra Costa County Fire Protection District inspector said.

The blaze was reported at 7:02 a.m. at a Food Stop store at 3800 San Pablo Dam Road, Fire Inspector George Laing said.

Firefighters responded and extinguished the fire by 7:38 a.m., Laing said.

The two occupants inside the store at the time of the blaze were able to make it out safely, he said.

The official cause of the fire remains under investigation, but its area of origin is near electrical equipment, Laing said.

There was no estimate yet for how much damage was caused by the blaze, he said.

Are you also correcting the Headline "No injuries have been reported burning the fire."?

The author/editor should also stop writing articles using phrases like "today" and "this morning" since with zero staff and no updates we will be seeing this article as a top story for the next week. (I do not envy the poor editor who has to "cover" *nineteen* cities in the E. Bay, but really, after the errors have been pointed out, such as the subhead one, is it too difficult to correct it? Since, like I said, we'll be seeing it as a top headline along with all the advertorials in the newsletter for the next week.)
