Extensive damage to two vehicles after separate fires in Moncton.

In the first,  thick black smoke was reported coming from one of the bays at a Muffler shop on Mountain Road at around 5:15 pm.

Moncton Fire Acting Platoon Chief Paul MacFadyen says three crews were on the scene with another on standby a block away.

It’s believed a vehicle caught fire inside the building.    There’s also significant smoke damage to the business.

It took firefighters around an hour to extinguish the blaze.

A second vehicle fire was reported at around 7:30 pm last night, also on Mountain Road.

This one involved a tractor-trailer at a gas station near Magnetic Hill.

Firefighters were on the scene for around an hour.

MacFadyen says there’s significant damage to one truck, while a second blistered from the heat and its tires were melted.

Both fires are under investigation to determine what caused them.

No one was hurt in either incident.
