Fire stopped before becoming big blaze

July 23, 2010

Fire investigators say they’re lucky a fire station was located across the street from a building that caught fire early Friday morning. With a longer response time, the fire at East 30th Street and Sherman Drive could have quickly gotten out of hand because of old tires stored in the building. When emergency crews arrived at around 4 a.m., they found fire in two parts of the building. Investigators ruled the fire was intentionally set.
