Burning semi damages industrial building

A fire in an industrial building took Fort Wayne firefighters an hour to get under control early Thursday.

At 12: 51 a.m., crews were called to a building in the 8200 block of Bluffton Road about a water pipe. When they got there, they found smoke coming from the 80,000-square-foot tractor-trailer repair building that contained multiple car-hauling semis.

The building was filled with smoke, and inside firefighters found a tractor-trailer on fire. Crews were able to extinguish the fire and spent a considerable amount of time clearing smoke from the building, according to a statement issued by the Fort Wayne Fire Department.

The building sustained minor fire and water damage and moderate smoke damage.

No one was inside the building at the time.
