A midnight fire destroyed a well known vehicle garage in Harriman Wednesday.
Nobody was hurt, but Turpin Automotive’s large garage at 285 McKinney Road was left in ruins.
Midtown Volunteer Fire Chief Randy Scarborough said his department got the call around 12:05 a.m. when a neighbor saw smoke and fire coming from the roof of the garage.
The smoke was near the exhaust pipe for an oil heater that runs off burning motor oil.
“The fire is already out of the top of the roof,” neighbor Faye Conley said, according to an E-911 call sheet.
