Firefighters battled a fire that destroyed a large warehouse Friday morning near a freeway in Redlands.

The fire was reported in the 2200 block of West Lugonia Avenue. Video from the scene showed big rig trailers, including at least one Amazon trailer, on fire. 

Firefighters said the building, estimated at about 600,000 square feet, is a distribution center for a shipping company. There were about 100 people inside when the fire broke out. 

There were no reports of injuries.

Part of 10 Freeway was temporarily closed. Smoke and flames could be seen from the freeway.

At least one of the building's walls collapsed. There are concerns that more walls could fall, fire officials said.
