 SANTA ANA (CNS) - It took 60 firefighters 80 minutes to put out a two-alarm blaze in a Santa Ana commercial building early today.

The fire was reported about 11:30 p.m. Sunday in the 1400 block of East 17th Street, according to the Orange County Fire Authority.

The first arriving firefighters observed flames through the roof of the building and took up defensive positions outside the structure to protect surrounding buildings, officials said.

They utilized fire hydrants throughout the area to supply water to multiple ladder pipes and large hand hoses, officials said. Knockdown was reported at 12:51 a.m.

No injuries were reported, and an investigation was underway, officials said. Firefighters used drones to help locate any remaining hot spots in the heavily damaged building.
