Tire pile burns, spreads to building

September 02, 2007

MAUGANSVILLE - No one was injured Saturday afternoon when a pile of tires caught fire and spread to a building on Leon Grimm Drive off Greencastle Pike, said Bill Garrett, deputy chief of the Maugansville Goodwill Volunteer Fire Co.

It took firefighters from Maugansville, Halfway and Clear Spring about 45 minutes to extinguish the fire, Garrett said.

Garrett said he believes embers from a burn barrel drifted onto the tires and started the fire, which spread to a nearby building.

The fire caused about $25,000 in damages, he said.
