According to Phoenix Fire, there are flames everywhere and they are brushing up against a 300-gallon propane tank, which is causing the tank to heat up and vent. This happened in the 1000 block of W. Minton Street. The fire started at about 3 p.m. on Friday afternoon.

Fire crews say that if the tank gets too hot, it could become a projectile. azfamily.com will provide further details as they become available.
