Fire destroys Enon Valley business

NEW CASTLE — An auto repair/state inspection station burned to the ground Tuesday morning in Enon Valley.

Firefighters were called to Valley Services Garage on Route 551 and Beaver Dam Road at 5:15 a.m. They remained until about 9:30 a.m.

Ben Hostetler, Enon Valley Volunteer Fire Department chief, said the cause of the blaze is believed to have been a heater.

He said the state fire marshal has been notified and was expected to visit the site Wednesday.

The garage and auto repair shop was owned by Thomas Busser.

Hostetler said he did not have an damage estimate at this time but noted, “It is extensive. It was a total loss and his tow truck, a car and all of his tools were inside the building.”

Enon Valley was assisted by volunteer departments from North Beaver Township, Little Beaver Borough and the Darlington and Big Beaver departments in Beaver County.

Beginning tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the NHL playoffs. So, who ya got? And in how many games?

Penguins, in five games or fewer. Too much firepower for the Blue Jackets, especially if Evgeni Malkin is ready to go.
Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
