Firefighters outside Atlanta say they're allowing a fire at a massive warehouse outside Atlanta to "burn itself out."
Gwinnett County firefighters said firefighters are taking the approach at the Buford warehouse due to potential plumbing chemicals in the building and its former use as a tannery decades ago.
Fire department spokesman Tommy Rutledge says the building known as the Buford Tannery caught fire Tuesday evening and was already engulfed in flames by the time firefighters arrived.
Rutledge says a former plumbing business had occupied part of the building.
Rutledge says no one was inside the building when the fire began and no injuries have been reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
