Former Detroit record store burns in massive 2-alarm fire

- Massive flames destroyed a building in Detroit Tuesday afternoon.

Huge plumes of thick, black smoke could be seen for miles this morning as a two-alarm fire happened on Linwood and Puritan on the city's west side. 

But the smoke could be seen as far away as the Detroit River while Sr. Chief Darrell Freeman of the Detroit Fire Department said it was treated as a vacant building.

There were no injuries from the blaze, although one fire fighter suffer dehydration.

"It turned into a second alarm which adds more companies," said Freeman.

About 14 companies in total responded with 42 firefighters. The Angott record store name is still on the building which was long since closed, but the other section was used as a hall which was still active.

Arson investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.
