Parking deck fire closes bowling alley

A car fire in a parking deck shut down a busy bowling alley near NC State University Tuesday night.Authorities say a car caught fire in the parking deck under West End Bowl on Hillsborough Street just before 9 p.m.

An employee tried to put out the fire, but he says it got too intense so he called 911.

Firefighters quickly put out the blaze, but heavy smoke from the smoldering car forced West End Bowl to close early.

The building was not damaged and bowling alley will reopen Wednesday.
