Crews Knock Down Fire at Towing Company

MISSOULA -
No one was injured during an early morning fire at a Missoula tow truck company, but employees said the blaze damaged a lot of equipment.

Sparr's Towing workers said an extension cord was to blame for the fire that started around five o'clock this morning on West Central Avenue. 

Workers said the fire consumed the plastic siding on one of their tow trucks, and caused more damage inside the building.

Five engines and a truck were dispatched to the scene, and crews knocked down the fire from the inside of the warehouse.

Fire investigators said they're still determining the total amount of damages.

There were no injuries to civilians or fire fighters.

Damages have not been estimated at this time.
