Car Repair Shop Total Loss In Fire

Fire Tuesday afternoon destroyed a Greenville car repair business.

The first call came in around 1:40 p.m. to the business on Myrtle Street, near the intersection with Columbia Street.

Fire-Rescue Battalion Chief Doug Branch says the fire looks to be accidental, but they still are investigating the exact cause.

Twenty-five firefighters brought the fire under control in less than a half hour.

No one was injured while several streets were closed down because of the blaze.

    I guess you still missed the fact that my comment was the same as everyone else's - to WITN because they didn't report the name. I don't see you addressing any of them. You have no reason to assume you know what my thoughts were from reading expressionless text, or whether there was humor involved - and didn't bother to ask. You also have no reason to suggest physical harm by saying go play in traffic. I guess you didn't read the TOS. Nothing said here warrants speaking abusively.

    Feel better now? Now run along and get a life and stop arguing over such nonsense. YOU are the one who has been snide since the onset. Should I remind you? "Lemme help you out... all the way from California... isn't the web a great too". Now go play in traffic on whatever street the web chooses for you on one of your searches.

    Oh, and by the way, the search was as easy as "Greenville NC car repair Myrtle".

    Hey "To Audra", pick a name. While you're at it, get some manners. I wasn't addressing myself to you or any other reader so you don't need to be so snide and defensive. It was to WITN for not having done the same thing you were commenting on. I DO spend time in GREENVILLE, incidentally. I didn't pick this website at random.

    Gee, you are SO smart. I also Googled it but the point really was why WITN would report a story, as they are so notorious for, without giving the most important information about it. By the way, since you are "all the way from California" you probably would not realize that the particular area of town this was in isn't exactly the type of place where everything is listed by address and easily Googled. Come visit and maybe YOU will get better educated.

    Lemme help you out... all the way from California... isn't the web a great tool. 1104 Myrtle would be Andy's Garage. That's close to Columbia St, so I assume that is the place. Glad no one was injured.

    Thanks GFR for your continued great work that provided safety in our city. No doubt a true danger zone for you guys and locals. Very proud or each of you. No doubt you are all professionals. All professionals don't wear neck ties or lab jackets.

    I don't think so "Um" @3:35. I guess the fire burned the signage off the building so everybody is clueless, and nobody is smart enough to ask questions.

    Again, top reporting guys. I guess you didn't get the NAME of the business!
  • by Um Location: Greenville on Oct 19, 2010 at 12:35 PM
    Do you guys plan on telling what the name of the business is?
