OGDEN -- Firefighters are at the scene of a fire at 7th Street and Wall Avenue.

Heavy black smoke and flames were visible for several miles.

A neighbor said the brick masonary building at one time housed a school bus repair facility. It is currently being used for storage, the neighbor said.

Susan Aldous, whose back yard faces the building, said she heard a boom, came out to look and saw the garage door of the building bulge out.

Aldous said she then heard several firecracker-like popping sounds from the direction of the building, followed by heavy smoke and fire coming through he roof of the structure.

Several vehicles were parked outside the building and at least one, an old school bus, caught fire.

Standardnet will update this story as more information becomes available.
