Firefighters responded to reports of a structure fire at Anza Drive and Avenue Hopkins shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The call for the commercial building fire went out to the Los Angeles County Fire Department and Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at 4:01 p.m.

When firefighters arrived on scene seven minutes later, they saw light smoke and flames and evacuated the building, according to a spokesperson with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The structure fire was found to be a small fire on the roof on an industrial building, according to Sgt. Maurizi with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“It was found to be a motor mounted on the rooftop,” Maurizi said.
