    A Gage Park auto repair shop partially collapsed late Sunday in an extra-alarm fire, authorities said.

    The towering flames burned through the roof of the neighborhood auto business in the 5000 block of South Western Avenue and collapsed one wall, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    There were no injuries reported, police told the Tribune.

    It took fire crews more than an hour to extinguish the fire. Shortly after 11 p.m. the blaze was under control.

    The cause of the fire is not known.
