    Firefighters are trying to find the cause of a large fire at a two-story building under construction west of Downtown Dallas.

    The flames broke out at about 4 p.m. Saturday along Sylvan Avenue just north of Interstate 30.

    The office building may be a part of the "Sylvan Thirty" plan, a development that includes loft and studio apartments plus some restaurants.

    NBC 5 viewers took several pictures of flames leaping from two-story buildings.

    Jason Evans, with Dallas Fire-Rescue, said no one was injured and 40 firefighters responded to the call.

    In addition to the flames, firefighters had to contend with the weather.

    "A second alarm was transmitted due to the high winds in addition to the proximity of power lines near the structure," Evans said in a DFR press release.
