A wind-fanned, two-alarm fire destroyed one building and damaged another at a Tustin preschool Sunday.
No one was injured in the fire, which started about 12:15 p.m. in some vegetation between buildings at the school in the 14100 block of Newport Avenue, near McFadden Avenue, said Steve Concialdi of the Orange County Fire Authority.
A storage building containing toys, props and other school equipment was completely destroyed, while the main, one-story preschool building sustained moderate damage, Concialdi said.
One of three carports and two vehicles at a nearby apartment complex were also damaged as the fire was spread by strong winds, he said.
About 60 firefighters responded and had the blaze under control by 12:45 a.m., Concialdi said.
The fire did an estimated $250,000 in structural damage and another $125,000 in damage to contents and the two vehicles, he said.
The cause of the fire was under investigation and anyone who may have seen anything suspicious was urged to contact arson investigators at (714) 573- 6700.
