Ten firefighters were injured in a blaze that broke out at a commercial building here on Sunday, authorities said.

Jeff Lutz of the Anaheim Fire Department said the injuries were all mild to moderate.

He said the fire was reported just after 4 p.m. Sunday near chemical storage tanks outside Alstyle Dyeing and Finishing. The blaze, which burned through combustible material near the tanks, was out in under two hours. The chemicals in the tanks are not flammable.

Lutz says the firefighters were hurt while putting out the blaze, but did not know the exact nature of their injuries.

The cause is under investigation.
