MORAINE — UPDATE @10:15 a.m. 3/6/2015
Crews are trying to determine the cause of a fire at Brownie’s Independent Transmission on South Dixie Drive.
The early indication is the fire started in the back of the building, at 4794 S. Dixie, where there are officers and a service garage, Moraine Fire Marshal Doug Hatcher said.
The transmission business is in the front of the building.
Some uniforms were damaged and crews punched a hole in the building to ventilate the smoke, he said.
Firefighters also were deployed to the roof of the business, looking for hot spots and making sure flames didn’t make their way into the roof.
Reports of smoke prompted the dispatching of fire crews about 9:50 p.m., Hatcher said.
