      Crews battle business fire on Dort Highway

      Witnesses say tires near the back of the business caught fire.

      Fire crews from several departments were called to the scene of a huge industrial fire on Dort Highway in Genesee Township Wednesday afternoon.

      Smoke could be seen from as far away as Interstate 75. The fire started behind R&S Auto, near Dort Highway and Carpenter Road.

      The fire broke out just after 1:00 p.m., and witnesses say most of the smoke came from burning tires.

      The fire was far enough behind the business to keep from reaching the building structure.
