Windsor Firefighters worked in the hot afternoon sun Saturday to extinguish a fire inside A to Z Auto Body & Collision in the 400 block of Erie Street East that sent smoke billowing into the Via Italia roadway.

Crews were called after 5pm and found Erie Street blanketed by smoke and fire inside the building.

After cutting open the rear of the building to let smoke and heat escape, fire began spewing from a rooftop vent.

Firefighters brought the blaze under control within twenty minutes.

Several pet birds were rescued from the building.

Investigators say they believe that the fire started in vehicle in the building, but the exact cause could not be determined.

Damage is estimate at $325,000.  There were no injuries.
