The fire broke out at Holt Auto just after 6:00 a.m.

As they fought the two alarm blaze, crews were forced to shut down Summer between Hollywood and Bingham.

"We're just fortunate it's not a Monday morning, with all the rush hour traffic and all of the commuters," said Lt. Keith Staples of the Memphis Fire Department. "This is a highly commercial area."

No one was injured in the blaze, which is still under investigation.

It was the second fire in less than a year at Holt Auto.  Officials never determined what caused the first fire.
