El Paso firefighters made quick work of a fire that broke out at a Lower Valley body shop Wednesday night.

The emergency call went out around 9:20 p.m. at the business on the 8200 block of Alameda, near Yarbrough.

Fire officials say the flames were in an area housing paint and flammable materials.

Crews were able to contain the fire to that portion of the business, extinguishing it by 9:40 p.m.

An official cause has not been determined.

No injuries were reported and damage is estimated at $30,000, according to investigators.

Alameda was closed in both directions to make room for the 10 fire trucks on the scene.
