Fire leaves Mo. Shop a Total Loss
Nov. 14, 2018—Firefighters spent over five hours battling a blaze at Jensen Auto Body on Sunday, reported The People's Tribune.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. Fire chief Rusty Strother said the building and its contents have been deemed a total loss. He noted the structure is very large and one-story.
Strother also noted the building naturally had a great deal of chemicals and other products such as paint and paint thinners that had to be considered as crews were working to control the blaze, according to the report.
“It was hot. It warped the ceiling beams which are super high,” Strother explained. “It was really tough to access with the steel. It wasn’t one we could chase,” he said.
