Authorities believed employees at the Econo Lube N Tube were working on a fuel tank on a vehicle when they dropped the tank, causing the fire to quickly spread.
A fire spokesperson reported that the fire was out by about 5:30 p.m. but several road closures were in the area as an investigation took place.
Las Vegas Fire & Rescue initially reported that everyone inside the tire store was okay but later reported that two individuals had suffered minor injuries.
The cause of the fire was ruled accidental Wednesday night with an estimated $1 million in damage, according to a tweet by the department.
