MORROW, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a large warehouse fire just southeast of Atlanta is sending plumes of thick, black smoke into the sky.

At least seven fire trucks have responded to the fire Wednesday afternoon. No injuries have been reported.

Fire officials say the blaze began in a storage area shortly after 2 p.m. in Morrow.

Video from WSB-TV showed intense flames behind the building. The television station reports that stacks of roofing paper and plastic pipes are fueling the fire.
