Power knocked out for several hours

PHOENIX - Investigators are trying to determine what caused a shed to catch fire in Phoenix.

The shed was in an alley near 48th Street and Thomas. The smoke could be seen on our tower cam several miles away.

Firefighters worked to keep the flames from spreading. One neighbor told 3TV he heard a popping sound. John Mendiola explains, "It sounded like ammo, like old ammo that may have been in there. I was right there in the back when it was going off so I did hear a lot of that."

Power was out in the area for a few hours.
