CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Police shut down the 7400 block of the Interstate 37 access road near Southern Minerals Road after a fire broke on the northbound side of the highway.

The blaze occurred at a heavy engine and hydraulic repair facility that contained various flammable products on Monday.

Fortunately, no one was in the building when the fire broke out and no injuries were reported. The only damage was a car in the parking lot.

Firefighter Chris Guilianelle sent us these photos he took at the scene.

Fire investigators were called out to the scene, which reportedly was contained in less than 10 minutes.

Investigators still don't know what caused the fire.
