Auto service business fire near Brewster calls multiple departments

Heck, I came back fro C-bus today and could see the smoke on 30 as I was coming into Wooster. Must have been a hell of a blaze.

Hope all of the firefighters were/are safe.

Paul Pratt's service out on Barrs Rd burnt down.  Hope his home in back of the garage is ok.  The road is still blocked off.

Thick, black smoke filled much of the sky and was visible for miles Friday afternoon when a fire destroyed a 1,700-square-foot auto service business and adjacent ranch-style home, and injured the property owner.

Both home and business a total loss and Paul was sent to the hospital for burns to hands and arms and I think smoke inhalation too.  We could see the black smoke from our house and my mother-in-law said that she heard an explosion as well.  So sad that they not only lost their home and all their belongings, but they also lost the livelihood.  Prayers to the Pratts.
