Fire at Reaume Brothers Racing shop; team members injured: UPDATES

UPDATE 2: Our team members, Taylor Collier and Devin Fokin, have been treated and released. Taylor was treated for smoke inhalation at Lake Norman Regional and Devin was treated for serious burns at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist’s Burn Center. They are both in good spirits and are now on the road to recovery.

UPDATE: Firefighters were dispatched to the shop, which is scheduled to field entries for driver Mason Massey in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series this season, at about 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

The fire department extinguished the blaze quickly. The department stated on its Facebook page that one individual was transported to Lake Norman Regional hospital for smoke inhalation, and another was transported to Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem, N.C. with burn injuries. A third was treated and released.

The Mooresville Fire Marshall’s office is investigating the cause of the fire. The fire department said the shop sustained “significant fire damage.”
