Blue Springs Parkway Business Destroyed In Monday Blaze

Fire destroyed a Blue Springs Parkway business early Monday afternoon, officials said.

No one was injured when Steve's Auto Repair, 3936 Blue Springs Parkway, erupted in flames just after 1 p.m., Mosheim Fire Chief Tony Moorman said.

Renter Steve Garber told sheriff's deputies that apparently a spark from a wood stove landed in dry grass behind the building, setting the grass on fire.

The burning grass caused old tires behind the building to ignite, which set the auto repair shop on fire, Lt. Wesley Holt of the Greene County Sheriff's Department said in a report.

Fire started in the back corner of the building, and Garber told deputies that he was working in the shop when the fire began.

Three vehicles and a boat inside the building were destroyed, Lt. Holt said. Their combined value is $50,000. Damage to tools and shop equipment totaled $50,000. The building is valued at $30,000.

The owner of the building is listed as Ray Britt.

The building and business were not insured, the report said.

No injures were reported.

The Town of Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department, the Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department and the Sheriff's Department responded to the scene.

Traffic was temporarliy blocked on Blue Springs Parkway, near Twin Barns Road.
