STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford firefighters had to use power saws to cut open locked security gates to fight a fire at an auto body shop early Friday.

Firefighters responded to a 911 call at 1:14 a.m. Friday for a fire at Bill's Service at 49 Gleason Ave. Initially, firefighters couldn't get into the building that had heavy smoke emanating from the single-story building.

Firefighters had to fight through heavy smoke, zero visibility and the maze-like conditions due to stored vehicles in order to find the blaze.

The fire was doused by 2:38 a.m.

No one was hurt, and the fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
