Fully engulfed in flames is how Strasburg firefighters described the scene they found Friday afternoon when they arrived at A-1 Auto Sales and Towing. Fire destroyed the Business, located on John Marshall Highway according to fire chief Bill Street, who called it a total loss. Gusty winds and the fact that the building contained lots of combustibles made controlling the fire almost impossible according to street who says fire was shooting from all four sections of the building when the first trucks arrived. Several people were in the building when the first started including a customer who told the Northern Virginia Daily newspaper that the fire seemed to start and spread quickly. In addition to the building, one car and two motorcycles were destroyed by the fire.
