Two storage containers caught fire following an explosion Wednesday afternoon in the Savannah area.
The containers, located off Raven Road near Mockingbird Crescent north of Shamrock Road in the Spotts area, appeared to contain fuel and construction tools, firefighters on scene said.
Acting Deputy Chief Fire Officer Randy Rankin said it appeared the explosion happened inside one of the two containers and then spread to the other.
No injuries were immediately reported.
Fire crews stayed busy for several hours shuttling water back and forth to keep the container fires under control. Mr. Rankin could not state what caused the explosion.
Black and gray smoke from the fire could be seen all over the George Town and Savannah areas Wednesday afternoon as the fire sent plumes of smoke hundreds of feet into the air.
A woman identified as the owner of the property on the scene declined to comment about the incident.
