A racing team’s shop caught fire in Mooresville Thursday afternoon, sending three people to the hospital, firefighters said. Mooresville Fire-Rescue said they were called around 11:30 a.m. Thursday to Reaume Brothers Racing, a race shop on Fernwood Lane in Mooresville. An engine arriving at the scene confirmed there was a fire inside the building. While crews were able to extinguish the fire quickly, the building was significantly damaged, firefighters said. Three people were hurt -- one person was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation, another was taken to the hospital and then released, and a third person was taken with burns to Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist hospital. The Mooresville fire marshal is still investigating what caused the fire. Reaume Brothers Racing is a NASCAR craftsman truck series team.
