Car Catches Fire At Chico Auto Shop

Apr 9, 2012 9:16 AM

Firefighters acted quickly to put out a car fire at a Chico auto repair shop this morning. It happened just after 1:30 a.m. at Affordable Automotive on Park Avenue. When firefighters arrived on scene they found a Ford Thunderbird fully engulfed in flames under a carport between two buildings. Crews were able to keep the blaze contained to the vehicle. Fire officials say it could've been a lot worse if the flames had made their way into the building because there were a large amount of combustible materials inside the business. A spilled oil tank also caught fire near the shop. Fire officials are not saying whether the fire was suspicious and are still trying to determine the cause.
