Husband and wife distillery catches fire in Spring Valley

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A fire at San Diego Distillery in Spring Valley started in a still, firefighters said Tuesday.

Firefighters were just 400 yards away at the Heartland Fire station when they got the report of the fire on Via Orange Way at 1:30 a.m.

The flames were knocked down in minutes. The still, which the owner calls 'Zelda', was damaged, along with parts of the building. Smoke also damaged several nearby businesses.

A husband and wife team started the distillery three years ago to make craft whiskey. They don't know how much it will cost to resume operations.
