Officials worked a vehicle fire Monday afternoon at Staab Repair on east 13th Street. The call came in at approximately 1:30 p.m.
Emergency dispatchers were alerted to a building fire at the business, with the Hays Fire Department responding, assisted by Ellis County Fire Department Company 5, the Hays Police Department and Ellis County EMS, according to a release by Hays FD Chief Gary Brown.
Arriving firefighters found a pickup on fire inside the vehicle repair shop. One hose line was used to control the fire. The fire did not spread to the building. No one was injured. After the fire was extinguished, firefighters used ventilation blowers to remove the heavy smoke from inside the building.
The most probable cause of the fire was a malfunction in the engine compartment of the pickup, according to the release.
Five fire trucks and 24 firefighters responded. The last fire crew left the scene at 2:13 p.m.
