The fire was first reported at about 5:30 a.m. at a large warehouse at 10852 Kyle Street, apparently the home of a towing company. Several engines and trucks from Orange County Fire Authority and Long Beach Fire are working to help put out the fire, and protect neighboring buildings.

Sky 2 also spotted several vehicles and other objects in the parking lot of the building burning. The fire is sending up a massive plume of smoke over the area.

Firefighters called for a third-alarm at about 6:30 a.m. as the firefight dragged out. According to the OCFA, overhead wires and potential collapse due to the volume of water being poured onto the building is posing a challenge to firefighters. A hazardous team is also on the scene.

No injuries have been immediately reported.
