DES MOINES, Iowa — A tire shop on Des Moines’ east side was damaged by a blaze that broke out Saturday evening.

The Des Moines Fire Department responded to a fire at Collins New & Used Tires in the 2200 block of Hubbell Avenue around 5:20 p.m.

Authorities say the owner of the business had been in the shop working on a vehicle but left around 4 p.m. before the fire started. No one else was inside the shop when the fire broke out.

Witnesses reported a tower of black smoke rising from the shop. Firefighters were able to put out the fire in 25 minutes but not before it destroyed a shed and a trailer north of the shop. However, authorities say the main building is salvageable.
