Valley firefighters put out early Sunday morning blaze at old Glendale Fire Department station

GLENDALE, AZ - Valley firefighters aided Glendale in controlling a blaze that broke out early Sunday morning at one of their fire stations.

The fire reportedly started at an old station near 55th and Orangewood avenues, now used as a resource station and storage facility for Glendale Fire Department.

No one was at the building at the time the fire started around 3:45 a.m., so no injuries were reported.

The blaze was hard to contain at first because the building is a concrete structure.

According to a Glendale Fire official, the blaze appears to have started in what was the living quarters and bathroom of the facility, so it was contained to that area of the building.

It is the oldest station in the city and has a lot of sentimental value to the department, so the blaze hit close to home, Gilbert Mancilla with Glendale Fire Department said.

It was fully contained around 5 a.m. and investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.
