A fire at a Santa Ana grocery store was intentionally set, authorities said Tuesday.
The blaze was reported about 6:30 p.m. Monday at the El Super store at 2445 S. Bristol St., according to Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi.
Investigators believe the fire was started in the middle of an aisle while the store was open and occupied, but everyone managed to get out safely, Concialdi said.About 25 firefighters got the blaze under control by 7:10 p.m., he said.
The fire destroyed food in the store and firefighters needed to use two large fans to blow the smoke out, Concialdi said.
Investigators were combing through video surveillance to get a lead on a suspect, Concialdi said.
