ABC15 Arizona: Officials say crews have control of a massive three-alarm fire at a north Phoenix Safeway. The fire was reported just after 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Phoenix police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 6:00 p.m. Wednesday July 11, 2018 to a report of a fire in the backroom of a Safeway supermarket at 35th Avenue and Northern Avenue in North Phoenix, Arizona.
Firefighters made an aggressive interior attack while clearing customers out of the store, but part of the roof collapsed and forced firefighters to prioritize rescue and evacuation of the large store while transitioning to defensive firefighting mode from the exterior of the building. Phoenix Fire Department reported that no injuries occurred at the fire.
The fire was elevated to a 3rd alarm. The fire spread to most of the store.
A witness reported smoke and water flowing inside with puddling on the floor before the fire broke out. Storms were in the area. Phoenix Fire Department is investigating how the fire started.
