VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) - More than two dozen firefighters responded to a commercial fire in Vancouver Wednesday evening.

At about 10:17 p.m., Vancouver Fire crews were called out to a fire in the 2700 block of Northeast Andresen Road.

Video provided to FOX 12 showed flames coming from Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting.

Vancouver Fire told FOX 12 that 26 firefighters responded and were on scene in about six minutes. It took crews about 71 minutes to put out the fire because they had a difficult time accessing the building.

Firefighters made their way into the building through the roof and side.

No one was inside at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time.

Vancouver Fire said crews were called out to a second commercial fire at about 1:48 a.m. Thursday at Jay's Stop & Go, located at 5620 Northeast Gher Road.

Firefighters quickly knocked the fire out. No injuries were reported.
