Flames tore through a Burleson warehouse overnight Tuesday, causing untold damage.

The fire was reported just before 3 a.m. at the Birdwell Cleaning Products facility in the 1000-block of NW John Jones Road.

Birdwell manufactures and stores items like brooms, mops and brushes inside of the 60,000-square-foot facility.

The size of the building made it difficult for firefighters to get access to the flames, according to Sally Ellertson, a spokesperson for the city of Burleson.

The source of the flames was roughly 300 feet, or the length of a football field, into the building, Ellertson told NBC 5.

No one was inside of the building at the time the fire started.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
