Cleveland firefighters spent four hours battling a large industrial fire.

The fire started just after midnight Wednesday at Victory White Metal Company at 6100 Roland Avenue in Cleveland. No one was inside the building at the time of the fire.

CFD's Assistant Fire Chief says they are looking at the smelting tanks inside the building as a possible cause.

Firefighters were able to get the blaze under control around 4:20 a.m. The hazardous materials inside the building dictated how crews would attack this fire.

"It was too dangerous to go inside, so we were outside the entire time," the Assistant Fire Chief told 19 Action News.

There are no reports of any injuries.

The Environmental Protection Agency is also on the scene making sure no chemicals leaked into the sewer.
