PHOENIX, AZ (KTVK) -- A fire at a Phoenix apartment complex's parking structure destroyed almost a dozen vehicles early Tuesday morning.

Over 30 firefighters responded to the fire near 15th Avenue and Camelback Road around 5:30 a.m.

The Phoenix Fire Department said the fire was so intense, the apartment almost 50 feet to the west of the parking structure also caught fire.

However, firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze between the vehicles and building. They said the building suffered minimal damage.

Most of the vehicles under the parking structure were completely destroyed.

The Phoenix Fire Department said the fire also burned through power lines and those lines provided an additional challenge for fire crews.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time and under investigation.

No firefighters were injured while battling the blaze.

The Phoenix Fire Department said they are still determining if the damage to the building will result in any residents being displaced.
