Firefighters are battling a three-alarm fire Monday morning in an abandoned cold storage building in Burbank.

The fire was reported around 2:30 a.m. in the abandoned, two-story America Cold Building at 10 W. Magnolia Blvd., according to Burbank Fire Department Battalion Chief Mark Hatch.

Burbank police officers on the overpass above the building saw the flames on the roof and reported the fire, according to police Sgt. G. Mirakyan.

The fire was in the roof and attic at first, Hatch said.

Firefighters first tried to battle the flames from inside the building and on the roof, he said. When the fire got too large, they began a defensive fight, pouring water on the burning building from outside.

No injuries were reported, and the initial search through the building did not reveal anyone inside, Hatch said.
