COOLBAUGH TOWNSHIP -- Firefighters say oil and rubber helped fuel the intense flames that tore through Jack Williams Tire and Auto Center near Mount Pocono Saturday evening.

Authorities were alerted about the fire inside the repair shop on Route 940 around 6:30 p.m.

Officials in Monroe County told Newswatch 16 that the business was closed and no one was inside, but three vehicles were destroyed in the blaze.

Investigators are working to figure out what sparked the fire.
