Crews are fighting what they say is a fire at a marijuana grow operation near the 2600 block of South Holgate Street, according to Tacoma Fire.

No one appears to have been in the two-story commercial building at the time of the blaze, which crews were called to at 10:22 p.m., Tacoma Fire said.

The flames are mostly knocked down, but firefighters are still working, according to the department.

The cause has not yet been determined.
