Firefighters fight tire shop fire

For the second night in a row, firefighters from three Langley Township fire halls were called to a late-night fire.

Firefighters from Halls 4, 8 and 2 responded to a fire at a truck tire repair shop at 19926 96 Avenue. The unit is part of a complex that services large freight trucks.

The call came in at 1:34 a.m. Friday, and firefighters were on the scene until about 4 a.m.

The fire broke out in a mezzanine area above the tire shop's office, and assistant fire chief Pat Walker said that made fighting the fire much easier. A large quantity of tires were located in the shop area but firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to the tires.

The firefighters were also able to keep the fire from spreading to adjoining units in the commercial building, but the fire did major damage to the affected unit. It went through the roof and the trusses may be damaged.

Langley Township fire department was on the scene Friday investigating the cause of the fire.
