Serious fire damages Spotsy auto shop
No one was injured in a serious fire Friday morning at a Spotsylvania County auto shop, a county official said.
Crews responded to Weaver’s Garage at 3519 Lewiston Road after an 8:43 a.m. call came in reporting the blaze, according to county spokesperson Kathy Smith. Crews arrived to find the building about 70 percent engulfed in flames. Fire was visible on multiple sides and flames were shooting through the roof.
Three nearby vehicles also caught fire.
Crews from five county stations worked to contain the fire and limit the environmental impact from the chemicals inside the business.
The fire was brought under control by about 9:30 a.m. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
