3 Departments battle auto shop fire

Posted by Kelly Hefelfinger - email

Chapel Hill, Tyler, and Jackson Heights fire departments were called to a fire Wednesday night at Abe's Auto on Highway 64, near Chapel Hill.

Firefighters say a car was being taken inside the shop area, when it caught fire. Three other cars were reportedly in the building as well, but firefighters were able to put the fire out before it spread to them.

The burning car was destroyed and the building did suffer some smoke damage.

Crews remained on the scene making sure no hot spots from the fire flared up.
