Fire destroys Mableton tire store

MABLETON, Ga. -- Just after 7 a.m. Monday, 911 calls started pouring into the Cobb County 911 Center. Dark smoke was billowing from the tire store on Mableton Parkway.

A spokesman for Cobb County Fire and Rescue said the one story brick building had heavy fire through the roof when crews arrived on scene. No one was inside since the building wasn't scheduled to open until 8:30 a.m. The building and several cars inside were destroyed.


Firefighters planned to be on scene until at least lunchtime hitting hot spots. Cobb DOT brought heavy equipment to help with debris removal to uncover those hot spots.

No one was injured, and the cause is still under investigation.
