Fire has destroyed a Cedar Falls auto and truck repair business.

Cedar Falls public safety officers and firefighters from Hudson and Dike all responded to the call at Beyer Motorsports, 3800 S. Hudson Road (Iowa Highway 58), just off the U.S. Highway 20 interchange on the southern edge of Cedar Falls. Smoke from the fire could be seen for several miles -- from Evansdale to the east and Dike to the west.

When fire crews arrived, sometime around 4:30 PM, they found the company's large, multi-bay garage completely engulfed. The structure eventually collapsed.

Witnesses at the scene reported hearing multiple explosions at the time the building went up in flames. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Most of the nearly 20 fire units had left the scene by 10 PM Monday, but flames were still visible from Hudson Road.
