LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A fire at a local auto shop has the Longview Fire Department stretched thin. The O'Reilly Auto Parts store, on the 500 block of Marshall, caught fire at 12:45 Saturday.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, but Fire Marshall Johnny Zachary says that because of the nature of the products it is a tough fire to contain.
He says minor explosions and high temperatures due to chemicals have been dangerous for his men.
One fireman was transported to the hospital with minor burns. There were no other injuries reported.
