Crews fight 2-alarm fire at Bay area business

- Fire rescue crews are battling a two-alarm fire at a Bay area business. 

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue says they were called to the Coastal Wipers manufacturing business in the 6800 block of Parke East Boulevard shortly after 4 a.m.

A FOX 13 crew arrived not long after, and said flames were spreading rapidly as the battle against them continued. 

The stretch of Parke East Boulevard between Harney and Orient Roads is shut down. Drivers in the area should take Hillsborough Avenue instead.

FOX 13 will continue with updates as they become available.
