UPDATE: Fire destroys Edgewood auto stop

Posted: Updated:
EDGEWOOD (KWWL) -

An early-morning fire has destroyed an Edgewood business.

The fire started at Edgewood Auto & Tire before 4:00 a.m. Friday.  No one was hurt.

The owner is in Mexico, but is on his way back to eastern Iowa.

Firefighters were using a crane to knock down some of the walls after the fire when they hit a gas line.  They say the public was not in any danger, but they had to take a break to wait for crews to show up to deal with the gas leak.

Firefighters are still looking into what caused the fire.
