Tucson Fire Department responded to a four-alarm fire in a strip mall in Tucson yesterday around 3 p.m.

The fire, which was in a strip mall in the 4900 block of East 29th Street, was heavily concentrated in four units in the middle of the mall, which made it difficult to prevent the fire from spreading in either direction, fire official stated.

Between the aerial operations and crews on the ground continuing to actively hit areas of fire, the fire was controlled with damage mostly contained to four units. More than 25 units and close to 60 firefighters responded to the fire.

The cause of the fire is an electrical malfunction of a screen print dryer.
