Assistant Fire Chief Matt Thomas said an employee at Steffes Motors at 1308 N. 25th St. called 911 about 12:15 p.m. to report a fire. Thomas said the fire inside the car lot’s garage was fully involved when crews arrived on the scene.
Thomas said the employee tried to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher. The employee complained of minor smoke inhalation but was not taken to a hospital.
The fire was declared under control at 12:48 p.m. Investigators were working to determine the cause of the fire.
