ODESSA - A distribution plant in Odessa went up in flames on Wednesday afternoon.

Thick clouds of black smoke filled the air after the plant caught fire.

The flames ripped through the business in a matter of minutes and the roof actually collapsed.

The fire broke out at Austin Distributing Plant at 3305 Kermit Highway.

The building suffered extensive damage and those flames are out.

The warehouse was a total loss but the front offices were saved by firefighters.

During the fire, Kermit Highway was closed but has since re-opened.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
