PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Thursday night's monsoon made it very tough for firefighters to put-out a fire at a Phoenix strip mall.

The fire broke out about 8 p.m. near 35th Avenue and Camelback Road and while crews were able to contain the fire to just one business, they also had to battle heavy rain, winds and live downed power lines near the rear of the building, Phoenix fire Capt. Ruben Saavedra said.

No injuries were reported and an investigation into the cause was continuing, Saavedra said.
