Toronto firefighters are battling a four-alarm fire at an auto parts shop in the city's east end.

Police say that three people were at Standard Auto Wreckers on Sewells Rd, near Markham Rd and Steeles Ave E, when the blaze broke out at about 1:30 a.m.

Fire officials say the blaze was upgraded to a fourth-alarm because the closest hydrant is more than a kilometres away, so they needed the extra firefighters.

Tanker trucks are being used to relay water to the site. 

No injuries have been reported.
