LEESBURG, Fla. — Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a fire at a warehouse in Leesburg.
Firefighters were called to a storage facility around 9 p.m. Tuesday and said they found smoke and flames coming through the roof.
The fire broke out at a freezer facility located on Bradford Avenue, off McCormack Street.
Leesburg firefighters called in reinforcements from Lake County Fire Rescue and the Eustis Fire Department.
“There was some difficulty because of the construction of the building,” said Leesburg Fire Chief Joe Mera. “There were flames coming through the roof, because of the plant construction there was difficult getting access to it.”
Channel 9 found a hole in the side of the building where crews eventually made their way in.
So far, there is no word on what started the fire.
