Phoenix fire crews were called out to a large fire early Friday morning to fight a blaze at a vacant building that caught fire in mid June.

Crews arrived at the scene near 7th Street and Broadway Road to find flames shooting nearly 20 feet into the air. Fortunately, no one was inside the building and no one was injured.

Fire officials say the building was involved in a previous fire on June 14. The cause of the fires are under investigation. According to information at the scene, there is a possibility that the fire was started by squatters.
