No one was injured as 125 firefighters battled a fire at a West Side asphalt company Tuesday afternoon.

A still and box alarm was called for a fire in the 4700 block of West  Roosevelt Road shortly before 1 p.m., Fire Media Affairs spokesman Will Knight said. A second alarm was called about 25 minutes later.

Several tankers were on fire and 125 firefighters helped to extinguish the blaze, Knight said. The fire was struck out about 1:50 p.m., he said.

From NBC Chicago's news helicopter, crews could be seen spraying water on a large metal-framed structure with its soft cover burned away.
