SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco fire officials say a three-alarm blaze that created a plume of thick, black smoke visible for miles was fueled by tires, cars and other toxins.

The fire at an auto body shop in the city’s Bayview district broke out a little before noon on Monday.

Fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge tells the San Francisco Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1k62fO6) more than 100 firefighters responded to the blaze. Television news footage showed firefighters on ladders spraying the blaze from above.

The building was a total loss, but Talmadge says crews were able to prevent a propane tank outside the building from exploding.

There were no reports of injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
