Hillsborough Fire Rescue extinguishes dumpster fire in warehouse

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue was able to quickly extinguish a dumpster fire early Sunday in an unoccupied factory.

The alarm came in about 4:15 am from 5027 Hartford St., and crews found a large warehouse with smoke and an audible fire alarm.

A second alarm was called due to the size of the building: 20,000 square feet and it contained flammable liquids.

Firefighters entered the warehouse, put out the fire and removed the dumpster from the building, according to Fire Rescue.
