Google Employee Finds Microsoft Campus Fire

By: Zach Walton - January 13, 2012

After CES, Microsoft is on fire – literally.

Amogh Asgekar, software engineer for Google, posted a video of a fire on Microsoft’s Mountain View campus. It’s hard to see exactly what’s happening with the “shakey cam” in full effect, but the excellent commentary of those in the vehicle give us a bit more context for the situation.

Apparently, trees are what’s burning and it’s raining ash on the road around them. Also, you can hear sirens, presumably from fire trucks, near the end of the video.

The Mercury News is reporting that the fire was caused by a downed power line.
