An afternoon fire caused heavy damage to World Discount Auto Parts, 7 Exchange St.

The fire, which was called into Lockport Fire Department at approximately 4:01 p.m. took 14 firefighters over four hours to extinguish. It reportedly started in the front portion of the building and climbed through the roof of the auto parts store. The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation according to LFD. 

The building was cordoned off by LFD and labeled unusable until repairs could be made, by Lockport Building Inspector Jason Dool. It's unknown how long repairs might take or the cost of repairing the damage. There was no smoke or fire damage inside the art studios at 247 Market Street.

Market Street was closed between Union and Chapel Streets while firefighters battled the blaze.

7 Exchange Street is part of the ART247 complex, owned by ENP owner/publisher Heather Grimmer, who was on scene speaking with fire officials and Dool. 

Grimmer closed the art studios for the evening to ensure the safety of the rest of the complex's 30-plus tenants. ART247 is slated to reopen at 9 a.m. Sunday.
