A stubborn fire heavily damaged a Nashville, Tenn., tire business on June 22.
Firefighters were called out twice to fight the fire at A Tire Store on the east side of the city. Firefighters were first called to the scene around 10:30 p.m., with flames and smoke billowing out of the building. Because of the tires in the store, it took fire teams more than an hour to get the fire under control.
Then, at 5:45 a.m. on the morning of June 23, fire crews were called back to the store, which was again engulfed in flames. The fire was brought under control within a few minutes, reports said, and firefighters remained on scene to make sure the fire did not flare up again.
No one was injured, but the building suffered “extensive damage,” according to fire officials.
Strangely, store employees told local media that the “building went up in flames a few weeks earlier” and that the “cause of that fire was determined to be arson.” The latest fire is under investigation.
