Auto-shop fire called accidental

BRANDON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Fire investigators are calling a huge blaze in Brandon accidental.

The fire consumed an auto-repair shop on Sunset Drive, just off Highway 18, Monday afternoon.

Division Chief Terry Wages of the Brandon Fire Department says an electrical problem may be responsible, but the extent of the damage makes it difficult to know for sure.

Wages says burning tires helped intensify the flames.

In addition to the building, at least four vehicles were damaged or destroyed by the fire.

No one was injured.
