TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Northwest firefighters responded to a fire on Avra Valley Road Monday night.

Capt. Adam Goldberg with Northwest Fire tells KGUN9 that crews responded to a fire in the 10,000 block of West Avra Valley Road.

Goldberg says 7,000 gallons of oil burned before firefighters extinguished the blaze.

The flames nearly spread to approximately 2,000 gallons of propane, but firefighters managed to spare the tanks by spraying foam to suppress the fire.
