An automotive repair shop in Schaumburg was damaged Wednesday when a vehicle being serviced caught fire, authorities said.

Schaumburg Fire Capt. Mark Nelson said the fire started about 12:35 p.m. at the facility on the 800 block of West Wise Road near Wright Boulevard.

It took 20 firefighters 30 minutes to extinguish the blaze, which caused about $50,000 in damage, Nelson said.

Other buildings sustained light water and smoke damage, but Nelson said all were able to stay open for business, including the automotive repair shop.

Wise Road temporarily was closed to traffic while crews worked at the scene.

The Arlington Heights, Hanover Park and Rolling Meadows fire departments assisted.
