Fire does more than $90,000 damage

ENID, Okla. — No one was injured Saturday morning in a fire at a shop behind a residence on North Cleveland.

Enid Fire Department responded at 8:39 a.m. to 1115 N. Cleveland following a report of a building fire.

Fire Marshal Ken Helms said the fire was located in one of several shops located on the property and flames were showing when firefighters arrived.

Helms said the owner of the property had been working with a bench grinder when a spark ignited the remnants of a flammable liquid in an open container inside the shop.

He said the home on the property was not damaged, but a vehicle parked close to the shop building did suffer some heat damage.

Northbound traffic on Cleveland north of Chestnut was blocked as fire engines staged for their response. Firefighters cleared the scene by 10 a.m.

Firefighters quickly had the fire under control, Helms said, but remained on scene to check for hot spots using the department’s thermal imaging camera.

An estimated $90,100 in damage was caused by the fire.
