Firefighers use foam to put out oil changing business fire

Posted by wlpo on April 2, 2014

Black smoke poured from an oil changing shop in La Salle. A fire started inside of Mobil 1 Lube Express minutes before 1pm Wednesday. It’s believed the fire started when the gas tank of a pickup truck exploded. No one was hurt.

Firefighters from La Salle and Peru got to the fire by breaking through the back garage doors of the building. They used foam to put out the burning oil.

Route 6 between Storages Bar and Grill and KFC was closed for a couple hours.
