PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Dozens of firefighters had to battle strong winds in order to put out a stubborn fire at a transmission shop in south Phoenix.

They were called out to the business near 15th Avenue and Broadway Road on Thursday afternoon and flames were in the back, firefighters said.

Firefighters said the call was bumped up to a first-alarm fire, meaning that more resources, like fire trucks and crews, were called out to the scene. It was then increased to a second alarm.

Black smoke could be seen for miles.

Video from out news helicopter showed sparks coming from the power poles as firefighters battled the flames.

Crews used ladders to get high above the flames and shoot water on the debris that was on fire.

It's unclear what started the flames but the weather certainly didn't help.

Crews are still on scene, putting out hot spots and making sure there are no flare-ups.

No one was hurt.
