Firefighters had a tough time battling a fire at Joyland Friday.  The fire started in a building on the property around six o'clock.

The building was fully engulfed in flames.  Firefighters struggled to get it under control because there weren't fire hydrants nearby.   They finally got in out after eight o'clock. 

"We don't have any hydrants near so we had to pull hoses and water supply lays," said Tammy Snow, deputy fire chief.

Neighbors from the area, gathered around, to watch the fire burn.

There are no reported injuries at this time and the fire remains under investigation.
