A fire at Fourth and Naples had smoke and flames pouring out of it's abandoned complex when firefighters arrived. Firefighters worked to protect surrounding buildings as the second story collapsed onto the first.

Fresno County Fire Battalion Chief Dustin Hail said the fire had tons of fuel, paper, plastic and trash to keep the fire burning.

Hail said another apartment building on the same property burned down last year.

The cause of this fire is still under investigation.
