Investigators are trying to figure out what sparked a large fire at an abandoned warehouse in Dallas Tuesday morning.

The fire was so intense that the firefighters had to take a defensive approach. The flames severely damaged the building, causing the roof to collapse.

The former aviation manufacturing plant warehouse was reportedly in the process of being demolished.

It caught fire earlier year. Investigators said that fire was due to homeless accessing the building and lighting fires inside.

No one was hurt, but the smoke and flames did cause traffic delays in the area for several hours.

Fire crews and investigators are expected to remain at the scene throughout the day.

They may never know the cause of Tuesday's fire because of the amount of damage to the building.
