Fire shuts down road temporarily

Emergency crews had to close off part of the street this afternoon, when the Value Brakes at 3144 Austin Peay caught fire.

A man working at a restaurant next door to Value Brakes was one of the first people to see the fire.

He says he knew about it before the men working inside the shop did.

"We hollered, screamed out: 'is anybody in there working?' Guys started coming out and I asked them did they call the fire department and they said they were getting ready to call them right now," said witness Orvell Williams.

No one was hurt and crews are trying to figure out what started the fire.
