PHOENIX – Firefighters were called out to a fire at a medical marijuana dispensary in Phoenix Monday night.

Crews responded to the Encanto Green Cross Dispensary near Thomas Road and 27th Avenue shortly before 9 p.m. and found smoke coming from the building, according to Capt. Benjamin Santillan with the Phoenix Police Department.

"The units were able to gain access of the building and quickly find the source of the fire," Santillan said in an email to 3TV.

The fire is under investigation, but Santillan said it doesn't appear that foul play was involved.
