Two-Alarm Fire Torches North Quincy Auto Shop

By SCOTT JACKSON

A two-alarm fire caused “significant damage” at a North Quincy auto-repair shop Thursday, said Deputy Fire Chief Joseph Jackson.

The fire was reported shortly after 7 p.m. Thursday at T-T Repair, located at 431 Hancock St. Jackson said damage to the building was significant, and several cars on site were damaged as well.

No injuries were reported.

Firefighters remained on scene for more than two hours and were able to contain the conflagration to the auto shop, Jackson said. The deputy chief credited the firefighters for their efforts, given the density of the neighborhood and the day’s hot and humid weather.

“These guys, they made it look easy,” he said. “They did a really good job.”

The fire started accidentally, Jackson said, as an employee was working on a vehicle.

“The guy was changing out a fuel pump and it ignited somehow,” he said.

The Quincy Police Department closed off a section of Hancock Street for about two hours as firefighters battled the flames.
