Byrd's Tractor, A-1 Glass Open for Business Despite Fire

The Yorkshire businesses that share a building ravaged by a fire on Friday are still serving customers.

The Yorkshire businesses that were ravaged by a fire tare still open and serving customers, the owners told Insidenova this week.

The building that houses Byrd's Tractor and A-1 Glass on Centreville Road near the Fairfax County line caught fire Friday morning, apparently after an oil tank explosion.

Prince William County officials haven't yet determined the cause of the fire.

The fire ignited a second time Friday evening, causing traffic mayhem again on Centreville Road several hours after the initial blaze, Prince William County Fire Capt. Tom Pearson said on Saturday.

Despite the blaze, the businesses are still open 8 to 5 p.m. and are operating out of a makeshift office set up onsite, according to Insidenova.

Customers can order from the Byrd's Tractor website and there are still some tractors for sale on the property.

Wayne Byrd, the owner of the business bearing his surname, said the fire destroyed all of their computers, phones and records and even customers' tractors that were in for repair.

A-1 and Byrd's Tractor shared the building for 37 years. It remains unclear if the building will be repaired or rebuilt.
