Fire Damages Gift Shop At San Diego Zoo

About two dozen firefighters quickly tackled a fire in a large San Diego Zoo gift shop early today, authorities said.

The noninjury fire in the 12,000-square-foot panda-themed shop was reported at 1:49 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Crews knocked down the blaze within about 15 minutes, and it did not spread to any animal exhibits or other zoo shops, SDFRD spokesman Maurice Luque said.

The cause was under investigation.
