Bailey said hazmat crews have begun to clean up the runoff from the fire.
“When the tires melted, it basically turned back into oil. Some of that ran down into storm drains,” he said. “Cleanup crews are in the process of cleaning that runoff from the fire.”
Bailey said the preliminary damage estimates carry a price tag of about $1.75 million.
The structure alone was estimated to be about $1.2 million, and the contents were estimated to be about $500,000.
There was one injury Sunday night when a firefighter slipped and fell while crews were extinguishing the fire, but he was treated and released at the hospital, Bailey said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
