NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A fire broke out at Do It All Auto Detail in Nashville Saturday morning.

The first calls for the fire on the 200 block of Crutchfield Avenue went out just after 4:30 a.m. Because of the flammable and hazardous materials potentially located at the auto detailing shop, HAZMAT crews were called to the scene, and were the first to arrive, according to the fire chief on the scene.

Overheating paint thinners in the building sparked and popped as crews battled the fire.

Power line wires in front of the building were down, so crews cut them to avoid the extra hazard they presented to the fire. Eventually, the fire was contained.

Arson investigators will be on the scene to investigate this fire later. They were held up from getting to the scene, because they were still investigating the Edgehill Homes apartment fire from a couple of hours prior.

This story will be updated if new information is released.
