PHOENIX (AP) — The Latest on a large fire at a Phoenix supermarket (all times local):
The fire raging at a west-central Phoenix supermarket is now a three-alarm blaze.
Crews from the Glendale Fire Department have joined Phoenix Fire personnel to battle the blaze that broke out during a monsoon storm around 6 p.m. Wednesday.
There's no immediate reports of any injuries.
Authorities say it's unclear if the Safeway supermarket on 35th Avenue and Northern Avenue was struck by lightning.
Phoenix Fire crews say they responded to a report of a roof collapse at the supermarket with a possible fire associated with the collapse reportedly in the back of the large store.
Television footage showed the supermarket completely engulfed in flames with a huge plume of black smoke over part of the city.
