St. Louis (KMOX) An auto dealership in O’Fallon IL had to be evacuated for a brief time Saturday after a fire in the service area.

Newbold Toyota on Central Park Drive called the O’Fallon Fire Department around 2Saturday afternoon. A car brought in for service became fully engulfed in flames in one of the service bays.

MIke Dean-the pre-owned manager-tells KMOX the fire was quickly put out. There was damage to the service area but Dean says all areas of Newbold will remain open.

The entire building-including the showroom was evacuated as smoke was blown out by giant fans. No injuries were reported.
