A fireworks warehouse in Central Texas is on fire, though no injuries have been reported so far.

Smoke was rising from the American Fireworks on Texas Highway 71 in Bastrop around 11 a.m. Sunday. Bastrop sheriff's spokeswoman Dawn Adams tells the Austin American-Statesman that an employee heard fireworks detonate, followed by smoke.

No injuries are reported.

Parts of Bastrop are still recovering from wildfires two years ago that destroyed nearly 1,700 homes and most of the trees there.

Bastrop is about 30 miles east of Austin.
