Ted's Garage Burns Down in Clinton


A massive fire burned down Ted's Garage in Clinton.

Firefighters were battling the blaze since late Sunday afternoon.

Volunteers of the American Red Cross handed out food and drinks to the crews on scene.

The fire started at a building next to Ted's Garage on the 800 block of West Van Buren. Then it moved next door.

The restaurant and where they housed old fashioned vehicles were on fire.

So many people were out watching as a staple in the community was destroyed.

"I heard a loud explosion from my apartment and came over to see the scenery and a lot of nice cars were destroyed tonight. A lot of people will probably lose their jobs. It's a really bad deal," said Michael McDaniel.

Baum's Chevrolet is next to the garage. It is uncertain if it was damaged along with the other buildings.
