Berns was able to rescue his tow truck, a boat and his son's vehicle before the fire devastated his operation at 2015 Palermo Road.
But nothing else could be salvaged before the flames hit Berns' business.
"The fire went so quick, there was just no way to stop it," Berns said.
Fortunately, Berns had his work phone number forwarded to his cell phone number, and he said he still will be towing vehicles with the truck he was able to save.
He counts himself as lucky, despite his loss. Berns said although he lost his business, some in Palermo are much worse off then him.
"A lot of people out here lost their homes," Berns said. " At least I have that."
