CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WV News) — A late night fire at Country Club Chrysler Dodge on U.S. 19 south of Clarksburg was under control after dozens of firefighters were called to the scene shortly after 10:30 p.m. Thursday.
Reports of heavy smoke were heard on scanner traffic, as well as seen on social media. But fire officials on scene said the fire started and was mostly contained to a pickup truck in the building.
Firefighters were able to douse that fire quickly and were working on ventilating the building to rid it of smoke, officlals said.
Firefighters from Clarksburg, Bridgeport, Nutter Fort, Reynoldsville, Spelter, Stonewood, West Milford and Farmington responded to the call, according to the Harrison-Taylor 911 media log.
Also on scene were West Virginia State Police and Harrison County EMS. There were no reports of injuries.
The dealership sits within 10-20 feet of the roadway, so motorists were told to avoid the area to allow firefighters to have the access points necessary to contain the blaze.
