Coal Valley fire

Firefighters battle a blaze Saturday afternoon at Bastian's Auto Outlet in Coal Valley.

Fire Chief David Dunham said the business was open when the fire started, but there were no injuries. 

Dunham said the high-speed winds Saturday helped the fire to spread quickly and made putting it out difficult.

"Once it opened up in the attic, it just took off through the whole space," Dunham said.

Bastian's Auto is located at 106 E. 1st Ave. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
