Firefighters douse blaze at G & W auto shop

Share

The G & W Auto Repair Shop on East Ponce de Leon Avenue and North Decatur Road caught fire Saturday afternoon, May 28, according to DeKalb County Fire Rescue.

Capt. Eric Jackson, spokesperson for the DeKalb County Fire Rescue Department, said there was no one inside the building.

“DCFR fire crews had the fire extinguished in under an hour and a fire investigator was called to the scene to determine cause and origin,” Jackson said.

Reader Boomer Baird witnessed the fire and sent these photos. He described the building as a “total loss.”

Jackson said he wasn’t sure if DCFR had made that determination but said the building suffered “significant damage.”
