tac fireTacoma fire crews quickly doused flames at a boat motor repair shop that caught fire this morning.

A passerby noticed smoke coming from the building in the 3900 block of South Center Street about 7:45 a.m. and called 911.

Firefighters had to break through a gate to gain access to the building but were able to quickly extinguish flames in a workbench area of the business, department spokesman Joe Meinecke.

Investigators haven’t determined the cause.

Traffic on South Center Street is affected; one lane is open in both directions.
