Torch Ignites Business Fire in Alvarado

Firefighters worked late into the night Saturday to extinguish a large business fire in Alvarado.

The fire broke out at the Sabre Tower in the 8600 block of East U.S. Highway 67.

The Johnson County Office of Emergency Management told NBC DFW that the building that's on fire was being retrofitted. The official also said a construction worker was using a cutting torch when flames landed on a storage tank sparking the larger fire.

There are no injuries reported.

Fifty firefighters from fire departments responded to the fire.
