The initial report was for a three-alarm fire, which rose to a four-alarm fire. Additionally, the department designated the blaze a Level 1 hazmat due to the potentially hazardous materials inside the facility. 

The spokesman told reporters that the damage was “extensive,” and the building would likely be demolished. 

The fire department did not report anyone injured in the fire as of 10 a.m.
