The fire reportedly began in a shed, sending huge plumes of smoke into the sky south of downtown Phoenix Friday afternoon.
According to Phoenix Fire Department spokesman Dorian Jackson, the fire started about 3:15 p.m. when some small propane tanks exploded inside the shed.
Video from Air15 also showed a large yard with vehicles and other items that appeared to be stored there.
Jackson said there is concern about a 300 gallon propane tank nearby exploding. He said firefighters have been keeping water on the tanks to keep them cool.
Jackson said the home has not been affected by the fire. He said it is on two or three acres of undeveloped land. The homeowner was home when the fire started.
There are approximately 45 firefighters on the scene as crews are rotate through due to today’s high temperatures. Jackson said crews are fighting the fire in a defensive mode, keeping their distance for safety.
