Hollywood fire investigators are looking into what started a stubborn warehouse fire Saturday that caused heavy smoke damage throughout the structure.

Firefighters from four Broward agencies worked for nearly two hours Saturday night to extinguish the three-alarm fire called in at about 8:10 p.m. at 3701 N. 29th Ave. at a Niagara Distributors warehouse, Hollywood Fire division chief Joel Medina said Sunday.

When firefighters arrived there was heavy smoke and flames visible on the roof, Medina said.

“It was a fire that was difficult because of its position,” Medina said, adding that there was no one inside at the time of the fire.

Medina said the inside of the warehouse had chain-link fence dividers, metal racks and wooden shelves.

“The access was very limited,” said Medina. Hollywood called in assistance from the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Davie and Pembroke Pines.
