Waco firefighters are responding to a warehouse fire on Friday morning. 

The fire broke out at 2904 E. Industrial Blvd around 7:30 a.m.

Waco Fire Chief Bobby Tatum said contents inside are smoldering. Nine crews are fighting the fire from outside the building as there is an electrical hazard from the metal building.

The warehouse contains wood shaving.

Only one person was in the building at the time, but was able to make it out unharmed.

The fire department expects to be on scene for several hours.
