INDUSTRY (CNS) - Firefighters waged a more than three-hour defensive battle against flames that engulfed a 10,000-square foot building in Industry before extinguishing the flames early this morning.  

The fire was reported at about 8:50 p.m. Friday at 1250 Bixby Drive, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.  

Commanders at the scene requested reinforcements at 8:57 p.m. in a second-alarm assignment, authorities said.  

Firefighters poured water on the building from the ground and aerial ladders as they worked to protect nearby structures, authorities said.  

At 9:10 p.m. authorities said the left front corner of the building was possibly collapsing and they moved firefighters back from that area. The entire roof later collapsed.  

A knock down of the fire was called at 12:24 a.m. Saturday, the department said.  

No injuries were reported.
