An oil-fueled heater may have caused a fire early Wednesday that damaged a Killeen auto repair shop.

The fire was reported at around 6 a.m. Wednesday at A-Plus Automotive at West Veterans Memorial Boulevard and South Park Street.

Heavy black smoke was pouring from the building when the first firefighters arrived.

West Avenue G and North Park Street were blocked off while firefighters battled the flames, but have since been reopened.

No injuries were reported.
