    US 377 Shut Down in Keller After Fire

    US 377 in Keller was shut down Thursday afternoon after a fire at a lawn mower repair shop.

    Keller Outdoor Power, located on 483 N. Main Street, was a total loss after the blaze that escalated to five or six alarms during portions of the fire, according to Keller fire officials. Multiple explosions were seen at the location during the incident.

    Witnesses say the fire started at the back of one portion of the business, which specializes in lawn mower repair and sales. The equiptment portion of the business caught fire and drums of fuel within that section continued to fuel the blaze.

    The showroom, in the second portion of the building, had water lines that stopped the fire from spreading into that building.
