CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- A warehouse fire on East 12th Street sent Chattanooga firefighters and paramedics scrambling.

Witnesses tell Channel 3 the building is an abandoned warehouse used for storage, but it was often used by homeless people for shelter.

Our crew says smoke could be seen several feet in the air.

Fire department Spokesman Bruce Garner says firefighters had the flames under control within minutes.

No one was injured.

Garner says the cause is under investigation.
