BUTLER, PA…. As Tyler Hunter was locking up Hunter Truck’s Body Shop around 4:30 pm on April 16th, he noticed flames and called 911.  When it was finished, over 17 fire departments had responded and Hunter Truck Body Shop’s offices, parts warehouse, 6 service bays, the lunchroom and a DPF machine were a total loss.  The paint and thinners survived the fire as they were in a fireproof room.  The adjacent paint booth and an empty building were also spared.

The Hunter family reacted quickly to get things up and running again.  The fire was on a Friday, and they were back to work on the following Monday.  It took about a week to get new computers and replenish the parts department, but 2 months later, all services are available and the DPF machine will be replaced soon. 

The burned areas have been cleaned up and complete body shop and painting services are available.  If Hunter Truck Body Shop can be of service to you, call Body Shop Manager, Doug O’Neil at 724-282-1456.
