POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. -- Fire caused considerable damage to a Powder Springs tire shop Thursday morning.

The blaze broke out at around 3:40 a.m. at Mac's Tire Service on Austell Powder Springs Road.

Cobb County Fire spokesman Lt. Dan Dupree said the fire started near the back of the building. Crews managed to contain it before it could spread.

A car parked inside one of the shop's bays burned, but Dupree said the tires did not catch fire.

Nobody was inside the shop when the fire began. Dupree said someone was asleep in a car in the parking lot, but that person was not injured.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
