Cause Unkown for Ryder Truck Building Fire

Fire investigators say they cannot determine the exact cause of a large fire at a Ryder Truck repair shop at 1409 Craighead Road in Charlotte, but the damage is estimated to be about $500,000.

More than 60 firefighters responded to the large fire just before 3 a.m. Wednesday morning. At its worst, the building was fully engulfed in flames. No one was inside the building during the fire, and no injuries have been reported.

Firefighters had the fire under control in a little more than an hour, but crews worked at the scene for hours beyond that. The building is a total loss. Investigators are trying to figure out what caused the fire.
