York County auto shop damaged by fire, official says

A York County auto repair shop was damaged by fire early Monday morning, an official said.

Firefighters responded to Tim's Custom Painting in the 200 block of Production Drive in the Tabb area just before 12:30 a.m., York County Department of Fire and Life Safety Chief Stephen Kopczynski said in a news release.

First arriving crews saw smoke coming from the building and fire inside, he said.

No one was inside the building, and the fire was quickly contained, controlled and extinguished, he said.

No injuries were reported.

Firefighters from Langley Air Force Base and Newport News Fire Department assisted, he said.

Officials believe the fire started in the bathroom area, Kopczynski said. The cause of the fire is under investigation, he said.
