SEYMOUR, Tenn. (WVLT) - Firefighters had to battle flames at a car wash in Seymour.

Fortunately the fire department was right up the hill from the Prestige Car Wash, and were able to respond quickly.

The lieutenant says crews got right to work as soon as they saw the smoke.

Firefighters had to use a dry chemical extinguisher to put out the flames since the power was still on.

No injuries are reported, and the fire was extinguished after about 20 minutes.
