Firefighters have been trying to douse a huge fire that broke out in the industrial area of Compton in California.
According to officials, Compton Firefighters responded to the scene just after 4:30 am on Friday near the intersection of Santa Fe and Banning avenues., reports ABC news.
The fire was tearing through what looked like a bus yard. Flames engulfed many buildings and buses, wooden pallets were scorched and dense plumes of smoke billowed into the sky.
Los Angeles County Fire Department firefighters were also on the scene.
The fire exploded in size around 6 a.m.
AIR7 HD was over the scene as daylight illuminated the widespread damage. Fire crews surrounded the area as flames ripped through a handful of school buses and tour buses -- several of which appeared to be a total loss.
Flames were also threatening what appeared to be a nearby home. It was unclear if the house was occupied at the time.
No injuries were immediately reported.
The cause of the fire was not immediately released.
