EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- The El Paso Fire Department battled a massive building blaze Wednesday morning in the central part of the city.

The department said the fire broke out just after 8:30 a.m. in the 3500 block of Hueco Avenue, a few blocks north of Concordia Cemetery.

Heavy smoke from that blaze could be seen in the skies above El Paso. At the height of the fire, huge plumes of smoke were visible from other areas of the city.

The fire consumed a building sitting in between the Alta Vista Lounge and Lisha's Beauty Salon. The fire department said it was still assessing damage to the neighboring buildings.

A spokesman for the department said the cause of the fire was under investigation. There were no reports of any injuries.
