Dixie Hwy reopens after commercial garage goes up in flames

FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - A fire inside a commercial building Thursday afternoon left one person injured.

Crews were called of the 8000 block of Dixie Highway to put out a van on fire inside a garage. When they arrived, the fire began to spread from the van to the garage.

Twelve fire units were called to the scene to help. The garage itself is a loss but neighboring business, Shorty's Cycles was spared, thanks to a fire wall that withstood the blaze.

The smoke plumed across the highway and was seen by people driving south on I-71.

Dixie Highway remained shut down just past Weaver Road for several hours. The area has since reopened.
