Fire at Jerry's GMC

October 24, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

A fire at Jerry’s GMC Buick service center destroyed or damaged up to five cars.

According to Weatherford Fire Marshal Robert Hopkins, the fire broke out Wednesday evening. Two cars were severely damaged by the fire and others received heavy smoke damage.

By 8 p.m., crews had finished fighting the fire and were working on cleaning up.

Hopkins said the fire would have been far worse if not for the Hudson Oaks Fire Dept., which appeared at the scene in minutes.

“The Hudson Oaks guys need to be commended,” said. “They did a great job.”

If your car was being serviced at Jerry’s GMC Wednesday night, stop by the dealership (3100 Fort Worth Highway) or call in at 817-596-5581.
