A massive fire at a building under construction forced evacuations Monday in Redwood City. More than five hours after the fire started firefighters were able to contain the fire to the originating structure, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office. Although "under control," the area is in a 24-hour fire watch. No injuries have been reported in the blaze, which also sparked an air quality advisory -- wind is expected to push smoke across the peninsula and into San Jose. Aerial coverage from NBC Bay Area's SkyRanger on Monday afternoon showed the construction site gutted after flames ripped through the building. The fire was first reported at 10:15 a.m. on the 2700 block of Middlefield Road and garnered an eight-alarm response, firefighters said.
