PHOENIX - Crews were able to get a quick handle on a fire that sparked Thursday afternoon at a welding shop in Phoenix.
Phoenix Fire Department officials say the blaze broke out about Thursday in a debris area in the back of the business and ignited several welding tanks.
Fire department spokesman Jorge Enriquez said the tanks caught fire at around 4 p.m. at the business near 7th Street and Buckeye Road.
Video from the scene Thursday afternoon showed a plume of smoke rising into the sky from the welding yard, but Air15 video over the area around 5 p.m. showed firefighters had gotten a handle on the flames.
Crews at the scene were able to keep the fire away from a warehouse that contained dozens of oxygen and other combustible tanks.
Fire officials said there are no reported injuries.
It's still unclear how the fire started
