LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Crews from communities all around the city of Alliance joined forces to get control of a massive fire at a tire shop this week.

Reports about the Box Butte County blaze first started coming out early Tuesday morning.

The area was quickly closed off as firefighters battled flames that shot high into the air, and thick black smoke surrounded the city.

Now Nebraska State Patrol is calling attention to their efforts.

It’s praising their work in preventing injuries and says this is just another reason why volunteer firefighters are incredible.

Officials say any donations can be left in front of the local fire hall.
