Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (WJBK) -- Crews battled a large commercial building fire Tuesday on the city's west side.

Google Maps lists the building as Brothers Truck and Trailer on Lonyo and St. John Ave. just south of I-94.

Firefighters are dealing with temperatures near zero degrees. A fire hydrant in front of the burning building was frozen and could not be used.

Officials say the fire was at a HAZMAT Level 1 since building contains propane and tires. No injuries have been reported.

Crews in downtown Detroit are also battling frigid temperatures as they work to repair a massive sinkhole on Jefferson Avenue.
