The fire was reported around 4:30 a.m. at Northwest Storage off Hickory Grove Road.  Shortly after 5 a.m. Davenport Police issued an alert that the 3000 block was affected.

"The road is temporarily blocked from Thornwood to Hillandale," said the department's alert; that is .3 miles of road.

The fire has since been contained but crews reportedly had a tough time getting into the storage units to figure out where the fire was coming from.  One of the units had fireworks inside.

There have been no reported injuries.
