PALMVIEW – Firefighters have contained the scene of a structure fire in Palmview.
It happened just south of La Homa Road along Gracie Avenue.
Thick black smoke from the fire was visible for several miles.
Authorities said there was a car port with several vehicles and equipment.
Fire officials told CHANNEL 5 NEWS there were also loud noises as electrical lines fell down.
Palmview Fire Chief Christopher Barrera said the fire is now contained.
"Immediate concern was to make sure there was no threat to life safety. Once we determined that there was no body that was in trouble or trapped or anything like that, we proceeded to protect the homes," said Barrera.
