Cause of Tire Shop Fire Unknown

Posted by wlpo on June 26, 2010

The cause of Friday morning’s fire at Big Guy and Sons Tires in Ladd remains under investigation.

Ladd fire officials say the state fire marshall’s office is helping to find a cause.  At this point, firefighters don’t think the fire is suspicious in nature.

The initial fire call came into the Ladd Fire Department at 7:02 this morning.  Several other fire departments assisted.  The building  is a total loss.  A nearby garage also took on some minor heat damage.

People from as far away as Grand Ridge reported being able to see the thick black smoke.
