On February 28, 2014, at 2:41 PM a fire was reported at the Suntrup Ford dealership in Kirkwood.  The fire was on the exterior of the paint booth but extended to the interior of the paint booth through the ventilation system. The employees had started to fight the fire when the sprinkler activated inside the booth which held that part of the fire in check. The employee’s then worked on fighting the fire on the exterior until the fire department arrived.
