FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — What started as a car fire spread in a storage facility south of downtown Fort Wayne on Monday, and the Fort Wayne Fire Department (FWFD) is investigating.
Crews were spotted just before 2:30 p.m. in the area of 2206 Broadway at BTE Storage. The video above shared by WANE 15 viewer Chad Schlatter shows smoke coming from the building.
According to the FWFD, a vehicle was on fire in one of the storage units, which then spread through the attic to seven other storage units.
The FWFD said the first firefighters to arrive at the scene saw black smoke coming from a structure. It took more than 30 minutes to contain the flames, according to a release from the FWFD.
A firefighter at the scene said the damage to the storage units was “pretty significant.” The release said there was heavy damage at the facility due to the fire, smoke, and water.
No injuries were reported, according to the release.
Drew Bogs sent WANE 15 photos that provided an aerial view of the fire from downtown Fort Wayne, and a large amount of smoke could be seen in the air.
Another WANE 15 viewer sent a video of the smoke from the intersection of Broadway and Taylor Street.
