Video from tnbushwhacker of a fire on January 17 at Mighty Muffler and Brake Center in the 3800 block of Western Ave in Knoxville, Tennessee.
From the description with the video:
There were two cars in the building and some acetylene tanks burning inside the back of the building. You can hear the roof start to give way around 9:55 of the video.
One person was sent to a local hospital for smoke inhalation he suffered in a fire that erupted inside a Western Avenue muffler shop today, according to officials.
The injured worker told Knoxville Fire Department officials that he was using a torch to cut on a vehicle inside a work bay in the building, and that the flame might have contacted the fuel line, according to KFD Capt. D.J. Corcoran.
