Although it took a call for extra manpower, dozens of firefighters responded to a short dirt road off Cheraw Road in Cassatt to put out a fire at a large shed being used as an auto garage. Antioch Fire Chief Bryan Spitzer said he happened to be nearby when the call went out around 5 p.m. Tuesday. “There were only two or three of us when we first got here,” Spitzer said.
