PHOENIX — More than 100 firefighters were called to battle a 3rd alarm commercial structure fire in southwest Phoenix Sunday night.

Crews were called to the scene near 35th Avenue and Buckeye Road around 4:45 p.m.

Phoenix firefighters said they took a defensive strategy to battle the blaze that produced heavy smoke from all sides.

Fire officials said they have control of the fire and will work throughout the night to put out hot spots throughout the building.

Hazardous material teams were called out due to concern about chlorine in the building, but fire officials say the amount of chlorine found was well within acceptable limits.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. There are no reported injuries at this time.
