Fire destroys building at storage facility, damages others

Local News

Windy conditions combined with snow and ice Wednesday morning impacted crews that responded to a fire at a Fort Wayne storage facility.

Just after 7:15 a.m. firefighters were called to the U-Store facility at 826 East Tillman Road to the report of a structure fire.

Flames were visible when they arrived on scene. Traffic had to be blocked on Tillman Road while fire crews worked to extinguish the fire which took about 45 minutes to get under control.  

Crews were able to keep the fire contained to one storage building, however everything inside was considered a complete loss.  

A person WANE 15 interviewed at the scene said he had a classic car inside the building that was destroyed.

So far, investigators have not been able to determine a cause and no injuries were reported.
