A fire yesterday caused about $10,000 damage to D&R Auto Repair in North Toledo, fire officials said.
The blaze just after midnight at 1810 Chestnut St. was caused by combustibles placed too close to a wood-burning stove.
Firefighters found flames a few feet inside a door. A small fire at the wood burner ignited the combustibles, and the blaze extended to an adjacent office area, officials said.
They listed the owner as Horace Greer.
