The fire on Friday at C&D Tire is under investigation.
The Oak Ridge Fire Department arrived at the fire within two minutes after receiving the report of the fire, according to City of Oak Ridge spokesperson Lauren Gray.
The fire was reported at 6:27 p.m. Friday. It was under control in less than 10 minutes and extinguished in less than 15 minutes, Gray said.
On Sunday, the garage doors at the shop, a popular place to buy tires in Oak Ridge, were boarded up with yellow fire line tape strung across the doors.
Gray said no one was injured in the Friday fire.
“Damage to the structure was primarily limited to a covered area behind the main shop,” she said. “ORFD also set up containment booms to prevent runoff from moving down the creek behind the business.”
The Oak Ridge Fire Department did not request aid from other agencies. Eighteen ORFD personnel responded to the fire, and there were other emergency workers from Oak Ridge Police Department and emergency medical services.
No one was immediately available in a call to C&D Tire on Monday afternoon.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
