Auto shop fire draws crews from multiple valley fire departments

PHOENIX — Firefighters from several Valley towns worked nearly an hour to put out a blaze at an auto mechanic shop in Phoenix on Wednesday morning.

No injuries were reported in the blaze near Cave Creek and Bell Roads which required the efforts of 50 firefighters from Phoenix, Glendale and Peoria.

The Phoenix Fire Department dispatched a crew after an 8:30 a.m. report of a structure fire in the area.

When first responders arrived, employees were out of the building and “Flames [were] coming from the roof,” Phoenix Fire Captain Todd Keller said. KTAR News 92.3 FM.

The flames were extinguished after 45 minutes, but crews remained on site to deal with the remaining hot spots.

Activity closed Cave Creek Road in both directions between Bell Road and Union Hills Drive.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
