Overnight warehouse fire in Tampa

Tampa, Florida -- Hillsborough County Fire Rescue battled a fire early Sunday morning at a warehouse filled with flammable liquids.

Crews responded to the abandoned warehouse on Hartford around 4:15 a.m. and found the large warehouse with smoke coming out of it. The fire was quickly upgraded to a two-alarm fire as the building was over 20,000 square feet and contained flammable liquids.

Firefighters entered the building with their hose lines and found fire coming from a dumpster. They extinguished the fire within minutes preventing any damage to the structure and were able to remove the dumpster from inside the building. The fire produced and charged the building with a lot of smoke, which required fire rescue crews to ventilate the building with special fans. Crews were able to clear the smoke from the building within 30 minutes.

There were no reports of injuries to the firefighters.
