A fire Friday afternoon forced a tire business on the North Belt to close.

Fire broke out around 3:30 at the Wholesale Tire and Service Center at 3421 Gene Field Road. Officials say a vehicle was up on hoist when the fuel tank caught on fire, and that set the building on fire as well.

Store officials put up a sign that read “Closed until further notice.”

There were no reported injuries.
