CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Dozens of firefighters were on the scene of a large fire at an auto repair shop in Cleveland’s Mt. Pleasant neighborhood.

Cleveland Fire tells 19 News crews were called out to the area of East 145th Street and Kinsman Avenue around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

Cleveland firefighters said there was actually one initial explosion and three secondary blasts from propane tanks inside Will’s Auto.

Firefighters said the flames also spread to a nearby occupied home.

A dog that ran from that home during the fire was later rescued and reunited with her owner.

At this time, no injuries have been reported.

It is not clear if anyone was in the building when the explosion happened, Cleveland Division of Fire Lt. Mike Norman said as crews searched inside.

The cause of the explosion remains under investigation.
