Emergency crews continue to fight a major structure fire on the city’s east side Friday morning.
Earlier Friday, flames could be seen shooting through the roof of the With Care Towing and Recovery building, located at 19433 John R St. By 7:15 a.m., firefighters could still be seen dealing with occasional flames, but mostly smoke.
An aerial ladder truck was on the scene dousing the building from above.
The neighborhood is heavily industrial, but there are residences within a block of the scene. Traffic along John R has been closed in the area.
