DALLAS –– Dallas firefighters put out a three-alarm fire that broke out inside an abandoned warehouse in Oak Cliff about an hour after it began Wednesday.

The fire started just before 7:15 a.m. on Wednesday, said Jason Evans, a Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman. When it was in operation, the plant was used for manufacturing purposes, he said.

Dallas police shut down the intersection of Glenfield Ave. and South Westmoreland Rd. to make room for the fire trucks responding to the scene.

Evans said firefighters were able to extinguish the fire quickly, saving 75 percent of the building. It was tapped out by 8:30 a.m.

According to Evans, the fire started on the second floor of the building and the cause is under investigation.

The structural loss was estimated at about $200,000.

"Thankfully, there were no injuries suffered by any civilians or firefighters during the course of the incident," Evans said.
