Maureen Flynn works next door at Syverson Tile.  As she was driving to work and saw the smoke, she wondered which building was on fire.  As she got closer, she saw the business My Mechanic with smoke coming from inside the building and two police cars on site as they awaited the Fire trucks.

Nearby businesses were evacuated for a short time to ensure safety, but are now allowed to enter.  Glass could be heard breaking as fire crews went inside to identify and extinguish what was on fire inside.

Traffic was maintained with one lane open in each direction.
