A fire burned through a warehouse in southwest Dallas overnight.

It started just before 1 a.m. Friday at the First Choice Pallet Company on Ledbetter Drive near Duncanville Road.

When firefighters arrived they found the corrugated steel building fully engulfed. Large stacks of wooden pallets outside of the building were also on fire.

The roof had already collapsed and the building was unstable so the firefighters had to attack the blaze defensively. They are now tearing everything down and will put water on the smoldering debris.

The cause of the fire is still unknown. The business was closed at the time and no one was hurt.
