Palo Alto fire started in former Merc bureau

The July 1 fire that gutted a downtown Palo Alto building, causing $8 million in damage, was set in the office space previously used by the San Jose Mercury News, Palo Alto fire spokesman Dan Ryan told NBC 11. Police Sgt. Sandra Brown told the Palo Alto Daily News: "We're looking for somebody." But she added that police do not have any suspects. The Merc leased space in the University Avenue building since 1993. The MediaNews-owned paper closed the bureau a few months ago as a cost-cutting measure. (Photo credit: Dave Price)
