HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- Officials say 10 people were hurt from a fire that started inside the Joe Gibbs Racing headquarters in Huntersville Tuesday afternoon.
The complex is located at 13415 Reese Boulevard West just west of Interstate 77.
Huntersville police say 10 people are being treated for possible smoke inhalation, and the fire apparently started after a machine caught fire inside the building. ... The building is home to the company that serves many NASCAR drivers, including Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch and Joey Logano.
A fire in February of 2011 caused significant damaged to the engine department at the facility, according to ESPN. No one was injured in that incident.
