Iowa auto shop burns, roads turn to ice


DES MOINES (KWW) -- A fire Wednesday morning in Des Moines damaged an auto repair shop, but also closed down a street when water used by firefighters turned to ice.

Fire crews responded to Mr. Auto Service about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. The fire damaged some equipment and two vehicles worth about $30,000.  Minor damage to the building itself. 

No one was hurt.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Traffic on a nearby street was blocked and officials called for sand trucks because water used to fight the fire drained into the street and turned to ice.
