Nacogdoches, Texas: Body Shop Fire Likely Caused by Lightning

Nacogdoches Fire Department Chief Keith Kiplinger said it took all five engines and four hours to contain a fire that left Venegas Auto Sales, 1124 Douglass Road, a pile of ashes and scorched metal.

"Because an auto body shop has a lot of chemicals, paint and other things, it made extinguishing the fire take longer than normal," Kiplinger said. "The cause (of the fire) is still under investigation, but we do know a large lightning strike occurred in that area about 10 minutes before the call came in."
