A four-alarm fire destroyed two Balch Springs businesses Friday night and briefly sparked a grass fire nearby.
The fire was first reported at about 7 p.m. in the 2800 block of Belt Line Road.
The cause and origin of the fire are still under investigation. Flames engulfed both Jimmy's Automotive and the Texas Pallet Warehouse next door. Both businesses were considered a total loss late Friday.
One firefighter was treated for an injury, though the extent of the injury was not immediately known.
Several cars that were inside the auto shop for repairs were also damaged or destroyed.
