PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Firefighters from Phoenix and Scottsdale departments worked Friday afternoon to put out a first alarm fire that caused the roof of an apartment building to collapse.

Fire officials said no one was hurt in the fire.

Phoenix Fire spokesman Capt. Tony Mure said about 50 firefighters were using five "pumpers", two ladder trucks and support vehicles to pump about 3,000 gallons of water per minute onto the flames in the 17200 block of North Scottsdale Road.

Mure said fire crews made an aggressive effort inside the building, but they were forced out by the amount of fire and the potential dangers to firefighters. The initial call came in at 11:55 a.m. and the fire was under control at 12:40 a.m., according to Mure.

The 911 caller said there was soldering work in the attic of the leasing office at the "Pillar at Scottsdale."

Phoenix fire officials said there was pipe work in the attic being done at the time of the fire, which was contained to the rental office and gym area. No one's home was on fire, Phoenix fire officials said.
