Flames rip through Story Avenue AutoZone, sign collapses

Posted: Updated:

A fire ripped through the AutoZone on Story Avenue Monday morning.

Around 60 firefighters and EMS personnel responded to the fire that broke out around 7:30 a.m., just as the store was about to open.

The flames caused the “AutoZone” sign outside the building to come crashing down to the ground, leaving a mess of debris and broken glass.

Success Academy is next door to AutoZone, and children were showing up to school while the fire was still active.

Officials say no one was hurt.

No word yet on what caused the fire.
