Morganton Public Safety Battles Structure Fire in Auto Repair Shop
Morganton Department of Public Safety was dispatched to a report of a structure fire at 2:18 pm on Wednesday, February 11, 2015 at Jim's Service Center on Carbon City Road. Upon arrival, firefighters found the building fully involved with heavy black smoke visible for several miles. All occupants of the building were quickly confirmed to be out of the building, allowing firefighters to concentrate on attacking the fire. Intial reports of expolosions and the heavy volume of fire kept everyone back away from the scene while firefighters with Morganton Public Safety set up defensive operations to protect nearby businesses while gaining control of the blaze. Public Safety units worked at the scene for over four hours, using aerial water streams, handlines and a backhoe from the City of Morganton Pubic Works to finally bring the fire under control and extinguish it. Investigation revealed that a gasoline tank from a vehicle that was being removed for repair fell of of a jack that was used to lower it, causing gasoline to spill out and the vapors traveled the short distance to the woodstove in the rear of the repair bay, causing a flash fire which quickly grew out of control of fire extinguishers. All employees of the business were able to escape without injury. Fire crews cleared the scene at 6:24 pm.
