Grand Prairie business ‘a total loss’ after large overnight fire

A longtime Grand Prairie business is considered a “total loss” Friday after a fire overnight.

Grand Prairie Fire Department Assistant Chief Bill Murphy said it took firefighters about 30 minutes to douse the two-alarm fire around midnight at Grand Prairie Audio, Tint & Security in the 1400 block of West Main Street.

The cause of the fire was under investigation Friday, but it may have originated in one of the several vehicles inside, Murphy said.

The business owner “will be out of business for a while,” Murphy said, as the large fire damaged everything inside and the building itself. Murphy said the damage was limited to just that business, and no one was injured.
