It was at 4:45 PM when the McAllen Fire Department received a call about a warehouse fire and responded to the location.
Firefighters battled the flames and heavy smoke for several hours and the department had the Pharr, Edinburg and Mission fire departments on standby. Local residents and employees stood in shock at the amount of smoke coming from the fire. The building housed medical equipment making it harder for firefighters to put out the flames. The wind did not help on battling the flames, but luckily there were no injuries from the fire.
