EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – El Paso Fire Department crews continue working at the scene of a structure fire along the 1800 block of East Mills Street in Central El Paso.
EPFD officials say one firefighter had minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital for evaluation. They added that the structure partially collapsed, and crews would remain on scene Monday to take care of hot spots as they popped up.
The Sunday night fire was a ‘Condition 4’ – meaning flames and smoke are visible. One view, from a nearby TxDOT Traffic Cam shows EPFD crews fighting the fire from above, using hoses and ladders extended over the structure.
EPFD officials told our crew on the scene that the structure was indeed a warehouse, but no other information as to the contents of the building were known. EPFD officials added that their crews would continue to be on scene throughout the night.
The warehouse is just south of the Union Pacific railyard and adjacent to the El Diario de El Paso facility on Texas Street.
This is the second large fire of the day, with crews battling another fire in Central El Paso, that damaged at least 2 homes along Yandell Street.
