Smoke is visible in the Bay Area and traffic on 880 is at a stand still due to rubberneckers. Smoke can also be seen on 980 and 580.
There are 37 businesses in the building and 10 of those have been impacted by the fire. The warehouse is being used for a community arts space known as Moxy -- businesses include woodworking, bronzing and metal shops.
Firefighters tried to go inside the building, but they had to quickly leave and go defensive on the fire.
Firefighters are still working to turn off the gas to the building because shut off is inside of the warehouse
