(November 15, 2015) – On November 15, 2015, The Fort Wayne Fire Department responded to a fire alarm at Isaac Tire, 3525 Independence Drive.

The warehouse and manufacturing area were charged with smoke and units were able to locate an air compressor that had overheated and created the smoke. The equipment was disconnected from the power and dry chemical was used to extinguish the remaining fire.
