Truck, storefront catch fire in Jacksonville
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A semi-truck fire spread to an auto parts store front Saturday, setting the structure ablaze, according to the owner of the store.
The truck, which was parked outside of New Kings Tire and Auto Repair in the 10,000 block of New Kings Road, caught fire while the owner was not there. He turned around and returned to find it engulfed in flames, he said.
The bright orange, massive flames suggest that the damage to the building could be extensive, but there hasn’t been an official assessment of the damage yet.
The area was closed Saturday afternoon while crews worked on the fire. Jacksonville Fire Rescue was successfully able to get the fire out.
