10:53 PM: Now they’re raising the call back to a full response after all. And they’re calling for police to block northbound traffic.
It’s described as a rooftop fire, about a 12 x 12 section of wooden deck, and under control.

11:13 PM: Our crews at the scene say the four-story mixed-use building – residential over ground-floor commercial – was evacuated.
But firefighters are reiterating via radio that the fire was confined to wooden decking over a section of roof and is tapped.
11:18 PM: We just talked to the incident commander, who said the residents will be allowed back in within the hour.
