A fire has consumed a Nevada auto parts store- reports the NEVADA (MO) DAILY MAIL online.


Nevada is about 75 miles south of Downtown KC-MO on U.S. 71 highway.



A 2-block area was reportedly evacuated due to a threat of explosions from acetylene tanks inside the NAPA store in the 300 block of East Walnut near the town's square (see photo below- courtesy of Chris Hacker & KOAM-TV via SuperDave).



The DAILY MAIL also reported that as of 6  p.m. Friday evening- the fire had spread to a building to the west of the NAPA store (building to the right in the GOOGLE Street View image).




Calls made by CSW to the non-emergency telephone number of the Nevada Fire department for further details on the fire went unanswered as of 9 p.m..
