The Fresno Fire Department is on the scene of a two alarm fire at Blackstone and Ashlan in Fresno.
The fire is burning by the Kelley-Moore paint store, but it appears that several other stores are involved as well.
Fire crews are now in an offensive mode, and are working to bring the situation under control. A large ladder truck is extended over the impacted businesses.
The impact on traffic on Blackstone is unclear at this point.
