Hoquiam firefighters still aren’t sure how a car inside Fred’s Autobody caught fire early Friday morning, but they don’t suspect foul play.
The Hoquiam Fire Department responded to the call at at about 6:15 a.m. after a passerby noticed that a car inside the garage was on fire, said Cpt. John Bickar. By then, the car was fully engulfed in flames.
Firefighters were able to break through the glass door and extinguish the fire before the building was seriously damaged. The car was likely destroyed.
Bickar said no one was inside the building at the time of the fire, and no one was hurt.
Fred’s Autobody is located at 415 Ontario Street in East Hoquiam.
