Baltimore County firefighters responded to a 2-alarm fire just after 7 a.m. on the 3300 block of Hollins Ferry Road in Lansdowne.
 
The fire is now under control, according to fire officials. 
 
The blaze broke out at a one-story industrial complex Wednesday morning. Workers had already evacuated the building when firefighters arrived.
 
Officials say there was heavy fire inside of the structure, and once inside, they observed a roof collapse and called for a second alarm.
 
Firefighters are currently working to contain the fire that spread to multiple warehouses within the facility. Officials say there was equipment inside the building responsible for feeding the fire. 
 
No injuries have been reported at this time. 
 
The building, owned by Merritt Properties, houses multiple businesses including a machine shop, storage shop and a paint shop. Crews are working to stop the fire from spreading to the paint shop.
 
Approximately 75 firefighters are on scene and 20 pieces of equipment.
