Stored fuel presented dangerous situation for OKC firefighters

Oklahoma City crews battle large commercial fire



An auto collision center was destroyed by fire early Tuesday morning along I-35 in Oklahoma City but not before it posed a potential disaster for firefighters.

Nearly 300 gallons of fuel stored inside the structure on I-35 Service Road near Southeast 59th Street prevented firefighters from entering the burning building. It created a problem for the first responders as they attempted to save the building.

Eventually, the building was lost in the fire but no firefighters were injured.

At last word, investigators were unsure what sparked the early-morning blaze.
