Milwaukee Firefighters Battle Auto Shop Five-Alarmer

The Tuesday morning fire gutted Joe's East Coast Car Shop in the Riverwest neighborhood.

Burns of Glendale said Frank Fix took over and also operates Affordable Auto Salvage.

"It's a shame to see this," Burns said.

Frank Fix was at the scene Tuesday morning, watching efforts to extinguish the blaze. At one point, he crouched down and leaned against a fence on Pierce St. near where firefighters were cooling off after battling the fire.
