2-alarm fire damages El Cajon auto shop

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CBS 8) - A two alarm fire breaks out inside an auto garage in El Cajon early Wednesday morning.

The fire ignited around 1:30 a.m. in the 400 block of Main Street. About 30 firefighters quickly arrived on scene and found black smoke pouring from the garage at the Rock Auto Group Dealer. And that's when fire crews called for back up to help fight the smoke and flames.

"Initially crews had a little bit of difficulty getting in. Once they made entry, we decided to go second alarm and get additional crews here, just in case we needed the help. We did use some of the crews from second alarm," said Greg McAlpine with Heartland Fire.

The owner of the shop is working with investigators to determine the extent of the damage and cause of the fire.
