A car that caught on fire at an auto repair shop in Mountain View early Sunday morning caused an estimated $300,000 in damage, according to the city’s Fire Department.
The car fire inside a commercial building at 57 E. Evelyn Ave, just east of state Highway 85, was reported through a 911 call made to the city’s communication center around 4:15 a.m, according to a press release.
Firefighters sent to the scene arrived about seven minutes later to find the vehicle fully engulfed in flames inside the shop. They extinguished the blaze “with an aggressive interior fire attack,” the press release states.
The flames didn’t extend into other parts of the building, where crews conducted overhaul work to make sure the fire was fully contained, according to the department. The all-clear order was given at 4:34 a.m.
No injuries or deaths were reported from the fire. The cause remains under investigation, according to the Fire Department.
