BURKBURNETT, TX (KAUZ) -

A fire in downtown Burkburnett engulfs an old auto parts store Tuesday night. 

Burkburnett Fire Chief Rodney Ryalls says the fire that started around 9 p.m. near East 2nd Street and Avenue C at the former Elliot's Auto Supply is under control.

Witnesses say they have never seen anything like the blaze, and our crews on the scene say around 10:45 p.m. there was still a lot of smoke.

Chief Ryalls says the immediate area has been evacuated, and Burk police are asking people to stay away from that area, as they work to determine the cause.

No injuries were reported, but as of 10:40 p.m. AMR was on standby.
