AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW)-Richmond County deputies and fire crews were called to the scene of a fire in Augusta's Medical District at Wrightsboro Road and 15th Street Tuesday evening.

Investigators said the fire started just after 5:00 p.m. and took crews about a half an hour to control. They said it started as a brush fire and spread to a trailer, which caused propane tanks to explode inside.

The trailer near North American Van Lines sustained most of the damage. There was only smoke damage to the moving company's building.

There were no reports of injuries.
