A commercial fire sent smoke and flames into the sky over Southwest Fresno Sunday night. Firefighters rushed to Prudential Overall Supply on North Avenue near Orange, around 6:30 pm.

They say someone passing by the area called 911 after spotting the smoke.

Crews found a 120 square foot container filled with linen towels and uniforms up in flames. They had to cut through a security fence to get to the fire.

The cause is still under investigation, and there's no estimate yet on the cost of the damage.
