Emergency crews responded to reports of light smoke caused by an air-conditioning system that burned out at the Outlets at San Clemente on Sunday morning, Aug. 23, according to Orange County Fire Authority officials.
At 9:27 a.m., fire crews were called to the Outlets where OCFA officials determined that there was no significant fire or hazard, fire Capt. Thanh Nguyen said. One fire crew remained on the scene to investigate the cause of the light smoke, according to Nguyen.
Fire Capt. Nohl Perrizo told San Clemente Times on the scene that an air conditioning system burned out, causing the smoke.
