PHOENIX (AP) — Firefighters were able to extinguish a fire that broke out inside an Amazon warehouse in south Phoenix.

Phoenix fire officials say the blaze was reported around 4:45 p.m. Sunday at the Amazon fulfillment center near 50th Avenue and Buckeye. Upon their arrival, fire crews already observed workers in the middle of evacuating.

Firefighters found numerous plastic carts on the facility’s second floor were on fire. They immediately put it out and contained it from spreading to other items.

No injuries were reported. The second floor sustained water damage that made its way to the first floor. Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the fire.
