A complex of warehouse buildings went up in flames in a seven-alarm fire in Philadelphia. Fire officials say the fire is under control.

Officials say fire burned through the industrial complex of seven buildings in the Frankford starting at 2:48 a.m. this morning. The fire started in a four-story building used for storage of paper and spread to six other vacant buildings on the property.

Eyewitness News is told ten nearby homes were evacuated, rousting 15 residents out of their homes. No injuries have been reported.

There were 150 firefighters trying to contain the blaze, according to fire marshals, which shot huge flames into the night sky.
