According to a Hillsborough County Fire Rescue report crews responded to a 9-1-1 call from an alarm company monitoring the facility. Upon arrival firefighters saw a large plume of smoke emitting from the building.
A second alarm was sounded due to the size of the warehouse – 20,000 square feet. The building also contained a large amount of flammable liquids. When crews entered the structure they found flames shooting out of a dumpster.
The fire was extinguished within minutes and the dumpster was removed from the building. The blaze created a lot of smoke so crews brought in special fans to ventilate the structure to prevent further damage.
Smoke was removed from the building within 30 minutes. There were no injuries reported.
The official cause of the fire is not yet known as the investigation continues.
