Sign company a total loss after massive fire

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - The Best Sign Systems facility is a total loss after a massive fire Tuesday night. 

The blaze started just before 7:30 Tuesday evening at the warehouse located on 30th and South Pierce.

The fire burned quickly, with very high heat, and created a large plume of smoke, which is leading fire officials to believe chemicals were involved. They also say some type of an explosion took place.

They do not think anyone was inside the business when the fire started, and say there are no injuries reported at this time.

The building is a total loss and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

 


From the Amarillo Police Department:
8:24pm  Tuesday, April 17th

AVOID area of 3007 S. Pierce-large structure fire, traffic congestion.

City of Amarillo Office of Emergency Management requests that citizens avoid the area of a large fire in a building at 3007 S. Pierce.

People driving into the area are creating traffic congestion that may affect emergency response.

Please do not drive into the area.

Also do not stop or park on SE 27th or 34th, as this also affects traffic in the area.
