January 30, 2014 - The Fort Wayne Fire Department was called to an 80,000 sq. ft. tractor/trailer repair facility at 8222 Bluffton Rd. after an alarm indicated an active water flow from a pipe.  When crews arrived firefighters found smoke coming from the facility.  Crews made entry and encountered multiple car hauling semis located inside.  One of the tractor/trailers, deep inside the structure, was found to be on fire.  Firefighters were able to contain the blaze and extinguished the fire.  Crews remained on scene for several hours clearing the smoke from the building.  No one was inside the building at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.  The structure sustained minor fire and water damage with moderate smoke damage.
