Video Of 2 Alarm Fire At Farmers Market

Plant City Fla.(970 WFLA)-  Firefighters respond to an overnight 2-alarm fire at the Plant City Farm & Flea Market.

At approximately 12:40 am Hillsborough County Fire 911 Dispatch received a call of a commercial structure fire located at the Casa Ruiz Cafe inside the Plant City Farm & Flea Market. 

When Firefighters arrived they reported heavy fire coming from inside the Casa Ruiz Cafe.  During firefighting operations it was determined that the building was too structurally weak to allow firefighters to enter the cafe, and a defensive attack was called. Firefighters used gas powered saws to cut through the side of the steel building giving them access to fight the fire from the outside. A gradall tractor was also called to the scene to assist in firefighting operations.

It took firefighters approximately 4 hours and 30 minutes to put the fire out, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.   There were no injuries reported.
