Carwash rebuilds after being destroyed by a massive fire

CANTON, Mich. — Sammy Alnasir, general manager of Canton City Car Wash, said he is hopeful that the wash will reopen in late March or early April.

CANTON, Mich. — Canton City Car Wash, an oil change and wash business, is rebuilding after being destroyed by a fire last June, according to the Canton Observer.

Sammy Alnasir, general manager of the carwash, said he is hopeful that the wash will reopen in late March or early April, stated the article.

Canton City Car Wash was in operation for approximately seven years before it caught on fire, reported the article, which rapidly spread throughout the facility, forcing carwash employees and nearby buildings to quickly evacuate.

“We’re coming back,” said Alnasir in the article. “We’re Canton strong.”

Fire Chief Joshua Meier reported that investigators couldn’t determine exactly what caused the fire, continued the article, however it is believed the flames first sparked around the attic.

Speculation early on from officials determined that the fire did not appear to be suspicious and might have been electrical in nature, added the article, but they couldn’t be certain.

“I run into people all the time who want to know when we are going to reopen,” stated Alnasir in the article. “It almost seems like the customers lost out more than we did.”

Meier explained that a private environmental contractor and the Western Wayne County Hazardous Materials Response Team were on scene to clean up the water runoff, noted the article, which caused a small amount of petroleum to leak into Fellows Creek located nearby.
