WEST PHILADELPHIA (FOX 29) – Firefighters are responding to a large fire at an auto body shop in West Philadelphia.

Flames broke out on South 60th Street and Spruce Street around 10 a.m. Monday morning.

SKYFOX was over the scene as thick black smoke flew from the building and walls collapsed.

There are no reports of any injuries and Philadelphia Fire Commissioner Adam Thiel says he doesn’t believe anyone remains inside.

However he says the fire has been dangerous to fight because of the amount of fuel inside.

Thiel says the fire has not spread to any nearby homes in the densely populated neighborhood.

Philadelphia School District Officials say Sayre High School students have been evacuated and relocated to Andrew Hamilton School at 56th and Spruce Street.
