Emergency teams in Salem and neighboring areas worked for several hours Friday to extinguish a fire at Dwayne’s Tire shop. The Salem Police Department reports that the tire shop was engulfed in flames. Authorities have mentioned that traffic congestion near the scene caused delays for firefighters and towing crews in reaching the fire site.
Officials from Salem say that considering the involvement of numerous fire trucks, a significant volume of water was drawn from the city’s water system. As a result, there could be instances of discolored water persisting into today.
