Phoenix firefighters battle 3-alarm fire at strip mall
PHOENIX - Cleanup is underway at a Phoenix strip mall after a massive fire broke out.
Fire officials say 60 firefighters fought to put out the fire that broke out around 4:30 a.m. Sunday.
The fire burned the ABC Discount Center, which fire officials say is a total loss, as well as other business in the strip mall. A Food City is also located in the mall.
Phoenix Fire told us the fire quickly overran firefighters, but they were able to contain it to just that store. The fire affected several local businesses. We spoke to the owner of a dress shop in the area and they say today was supposed to be a busy day for them. Now, they're closing their doors.
"Obviously, we're not going to be able to open right now because we don't have electricity and we have water damage, "the owner said.
It is not known as to when the shops will open again — or if they can. Right now, the fire is under investigation.
