     Firefighters battled what they said was a fire in a commercial building in the 800 block of West Main Street in Ventura.

     When they arrived at the location around 11:30 AM Sunday they found smoke and flames coming from a single story commercial building.

     Firefighters say the effort to control the fire was hampered by a venting propane tank inside the structure.

     They attacked it with vertical ventilation and fire hose streams to keep it from spreading to adjacent structures.

     The fire was controlled in about 20 minutes.

     32 firefighters from Ventura City, Oxnard City, and Ventura County were involved in battling the fire.

     No injuries were reported.

     The cause of the fire was under investigation.
