LITHONIA, Ga. (AP) - Firefighters near Atlanta were battling a fierce fire at a warehouse in metro Atlanta.

Authorities say the blaze broke out before dawn Thursday in the Lithonia area of DeKalb County, just northeast of Atlanta.

Video from WSB-TV (http://2wsb.tv/2dBXYlX) showed flames stretching from one end of the massive building to another, with smoke pouring into the night sky. Video showed that much of the roof had collapsed.

DeKalb Fire Rescue Capt. Eric Jackson said in a statement that no injuries have been reported.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the fire is at the National Equipment Development Co. Inc., a bagging equipment company.
