A huge fire was burning inside an auto repair shop in west suburban Riverside Monday morning. There were no early reports of injuries, but the apartment complex nearby was evacuated as a precaution. The fire was out by 8 a.m.

There were road closures because of the fire.

The repair shop is located at 3212 S. Harlem. The apartment building next door sustained some damage, and the repair shop is a total loss.

Harlem Avenue was closed between 31st Street and the Burlington Northern tracks, but the train line is unaffected.
