Flames engulf local carwash, cause under investigation

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — Firefighters reported the carwash was already engulfed in flames, with fire coming out of both ends of the wash, when they arrived around 6:30 p.m.

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — Firefighters responded to a fire at a carwash located at a Phillips 66 on Highway 75 in Bartlesville on Jan. 13, according to News On 6.

Firefighters reported that the carwash was already engulfed in flames, with fire coming out of both ends of the wash, when they arrived around 6:30 p.m., stated the article.

Authorities evacuated the convenience store directly next to the wash, which was vacant, continued the article, and no one was injured during the incident.

The Bartlesville Fire Department battled the flames for hours, reported the article, which they stated was a difficult task since the building had a wooden truss flat roof.

“It’s pretty much a concrete structure, concrete block structure with a wooden truss flat roof on it,” said Bartlesville Fire Chief John Banks in the article. “The fire’s gotten up between the tin roof and the wooden structure underneath. It’s kind of difficult to get to it to finish putting it out.”

The firefighters had to peel back the tin from the roof, informed the article, so the last few hot spots could be taken care of.

Investigators are inspecting what started the fire and where, noted the article.
