Fire breaks out at West Valley strip mall

SUN CITY, Ariz. (FOX 10) - A West Valley business has been destroyed by a massive fire. The blaze tore through a Sun City strip mall around 3:30 Friday morning.

Crews quickly bounced it to a second-alarm fire so they could get more resources. 75 firefighters from Phoneix, Surprise, and Glendale showed up to help.

They say it looked like the fire started at the ground level of a dance studio and made its way up. A member of the first crew on scene says it was quite the sight to see.

"It was pretty intense, the full occupancy was involved," said Battalion chief John Ramsey. "[The fire] had blown out the windows, so the flames were overlapping."

No one was hurt. The dance studio is connected to two other businesses. The law office next door had some smoke and water damage and the Thai restaurant next to the law office got very minimal damage.
