Fire damages Perry auto shop

July 17, 2006


Firefighters this morning battled a blaze at an automotive garage at 204 Front St. in Perry.

Several area fire departments were called to the fire, which started shortly after 10 a.m.

Authorities said a gasoline tank ignited when it was being removed from a vehicle.

The cinder block and metal roof building, as well as the heat, made it difficult for firefighters to extinguish the fire, which smoldered for several hours.

Gee, my guess is they probably called Lecompton for help. What if they had to drive an extra 30 miles because the bridge was completly closed?????

I have to give all the firefighters a big hand. I know most of them as I live in Perry. The shop that burnt down was a good friend of mine. He is like a second father. I keep him in my prayers. Again thanks to all the fire fighters. I know they did all they could to try and keep his building whole. Andrea

I hope it didn't spread to the most important building in town, the Perry Pub.
