SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Crews are battling a fire that spread through the back of a business in South Sacramento.

The Sacramento Fire Department says firefighters are at the business on La Grande Boulevard near Kiessig Avenue.

Monday night while fighting the 5 alarm fire, 200 personnel worked to keep the flames away from small propane tanks and dozens of cars.

Officials said low water pressure in the area made the firefight very difficult.

Tuesday morning, crews remained at the scene.

Surrounding businesses were impacted by the flames but the fire department has not provided any additional details about the damage.

Four firefighters suffered minor injuries. Only one of them was taken to the hospital for further care.

No other injuries were reported.

Sacramento Fire said they have no credible information to have them believe the fire was in any way related to George Floyd protests.

The cause remains under investigation.
