The fire damaged three structures–the main service bay, the office and customer service building and the storage building on the property. Three longtime renters and a dog fled a home on the property after being warned by Indy fire crews. The home sustained only exterior damage because of the aggressive attack actions of first-arriving engines–29, 34, and 19–who kept the exposure protected while fighting the fire.
