At 4:57pm Pleasant Run and Shawswick Fire Departments along with Lifeline Ambulance Service were dispatched to a working garage fire in the 400 block of West Pleasant Run Road.
Upon arrival of the fire crews' additional resources were requested from Marshall and Oolitic Fire Departments.
Garage was fully involved at the time of arrival of the fire crews. Below freezing weather conditions presented hazardous conditions for firefighters on scene as water from the fire trucks and fire hoses was freezing and creating icy conditions.
Nine fire apparatuses and 1 ambulance responded with 15 men and women to assist in extinguishing the blaze. Because of the large amount of ice on the road in the area of the fire Lawrence County Highway Department responded with a plow truck to spread salt on the roadway to address the icy conditions created during the fire operations.
Fire departments were on scene for approximately three hours working to extinguish the blaze. Cause of the fire has not been determined at this time. No injuries were reported
