A fire destroyed the Andy’s Auto Body location in Maryville yesterday afternoon. No one was injured, and several area fire departments were called in to assist in putting out the blaze. The fire broke out around 1pm at the location just east of Route 159 near Anderson Hospital.
Fire officials say preliminary indications are that the fire began in the paint shop, but additional investigation will take place today. Fire crews from Maryville, Collinsville, Troy, Edwardsville, and Granite City were called to the scene. Andy’s Tire and Auto Service also operates two locations in Alton, and one in Wood River that remain open for business.
