TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - South Tucson Fire and Tucson Fire firefighters responded to the scene of a building fire early Thursday morning.

Lt. Jeff Inorio with the South Tucson Police Department said the fire began burning near 29th Street and 8th Avenue.

The building has been vacant for several years, and was known as the Independent Market, Inorio said.

No other structures were involved, and there have been no reported injuries at this time, according to Inorio.

Police asked that people avoid this area during their morning commute because of temporary street closures in the area.

KGUN 9 On Your Side is headed to the scene. Stay with us for updates.
