Firefighters say a Tulsa County auto shop was heavily damaged in a fire early Thursday.

The Berryhill Fire Department got the call at Wayne Moore's Auto Collision on Highway 97 near South 83rd West Avenue just after 2:30 a.m.  Because there no fire hydrants nearby, firefighters had to shuttle water to the scene.  

The Sapulpa Fire Department also responded to the fire.

Berryhill Fire Chief Michael Hall says the damage was largely confined to the office area of the business.

"There were two forklifts, but I didn't see any cars or anything. There were some sport utility vehicles and Sea-Dos and RV's out back. Really, most of the damage was confined to the office area up front and very little spread into the shop area in the back," said Michael Hall.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.  No one was injured.
