The Bogota Fire Department responded for an activated fire alarm on West Fort Lee Road. Police reported heavy smoke showing from the single-story auto body shop. Chief K. Kalman confirmed a heavy smoke condition and reported a working fire. Companies found fire in the ceiling, which was difficult to access due to it being above a spray booth. A second alarm was requested bringing mutual aid companies to the scene and for station coverage. As companies opened up the roof and the ceiling from below additional fire was discovered and additional companies were special called to the scene for manpower. The fire was placed under control in about 90 minutes. No injuries were reported and the fire was declared accidental.
