Update On Warehouse Fire In South-Central El Paso

Fire crews went to battle Friday night with a massive warehouse fire in south-central El Paso.

Investigators say the fire began around 8:41 p.m. at a trucking company on Delta and Coles.

Flames were visible from blocks away as gray plumes of smoke filled the area.

El Paso Fire Department Spokesman John Concha said a total of 20 fire units were called in because of the intensity of the blaze.

Concha added firefighters were attacking the flames from the outside because it was too dangerous to enter the massive building, which encompassed around 60,000 square feet.

He added parts of the roof and wall had collapsed due to the fire and that temperatures inside the warehouse were as hot as 1,000 degrees.

Firefighters were able to bring the blaze under control at around 1:20 a.m. Saturday. However, some firefighters required medical assistance, and even the Red Cross was there to help them out.
