TOLLESON, AZ (AP/CBS5) -

Firefighters battled a two-alarm fire at a large barn in Tolleson, west of Phoenix.

The fire was reported Monday afternoon, but Tolleson firefighters said it's unclear how the blaze started.

TV news helicopter footage showed flames coming out of the sides of what appeared to be a tin barn on a farm near 99th Avenue and Van Buren Street.

Firefighters said a loading dock made of heavy timber also was burning.

Some of the smoke from the fire wafted eastward and reached the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Firefighters said there are no reported injuries.

They said the barn was a complete loss and crews were having difficulty with water supply and access.

They requested more pressure from the water company, but power reportedly was out due to the booster pumps.
