Firefighters were first called to the 9600 block of Overlake Drive near Northwest Highway around 12:30 a.m. on reports of smoke in the area. When the first units got to the scene, they found a large commercial building with fire showing.

It took several hours to get the flames knocked down. The fourth alarm was called for manpower purposes, officials said.
