The fire then set off sprinklers, doing significant damage. Mayor Sampayan said the first floor is now uninhabitable.

"I'm dismayed," he said.



Mayor Sampayan is holding a press conference at 1 p.m. to make a statement.

An officer-involved shooting followed looting reported at a Walgreens in Vallejo at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. That led to a confrontation with another person who rammed into a patrol car and then led officers on a high-speed chase, police said.

The mayor initially said Tuesday he had no information about the shooting.

An 8 p.m. curfew is in effect nightly in Solano County until further notice.
