John McClellan was driving down Peach Orchard Rd. when he saw the fire.

"Me and my brother-in-law were driving down the road and we saw the auto-mechanic shop blazed up in flames. We drove by there and the front door was caught on fire and the flames..I mean the whole front door was just covered up in flames," McClellan said.  "I know the owner, he's a nice guy. He was telling me it's probably a total loss."
