Fire crews were on the scene of a building fire near 9th Street and Sherman Drive on the city’s east side Thursday evening.

Officials said traffic in the area of the fire was closed between 10th Street and Michigan Street.

The Indianapolis Fire Department said the building used to be the site of Continental Metal Products.

Neighbors told IFD that the building has been unoccupied for 10 years.

IFD said all companies were ordered out of the fire to launch a defensive strike.

"Firefighters getting tanks changed. Rehab and recovery. Safety-number one priority- Risk little to save little," IFD tweeted.

Few other details were released.
