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.
