Overnight fire damages auto repair business
A fire caused about $100,000 in damage to an automotive repair facility Thursday night in Ypsilanti Township.
Ypsilanti Township Fire Captain Dave Crescio said someone called 911 about 10:20 p.m. after noticing smoke coming from the roof line of the building in the 1400 block of Ecorse Road. Firefighters were on the scene for three hours.
Although the building was not completely destroyed, firefighters estimated the cost of damage to the building at $80,000, and $15,000 worth of content was lost.
There were no reported injuries.
The Ypsilanti Township Fire Department battled the blaze, along with city of Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor firefighters.
The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
"The cause is still under investigation," Crescio said. "The fire marshal is over there right now."
