PHOENIX — Firefighters are working to contain a massive pallet fire that ignited in west Phoenix Thursday night. 

The Phoenix Fire Department said more than 100 firefighters from four agencies are battling the third alarm blaze at a business near 35th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road. 

Firefighters tell 12News that hazmat crews were called to the scene because of possible explosions coming from the business. Crews are using a defensive strategy called a "Big Water" operation to attack the flames from an elevated position.

A nearby Circle K was evacuated as a precaution, firefighters said. 

Fire crews are working to determine what caused the blaze.  

There are no injuries reported at this time.
