Fire damages 9 cars at dealership

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Nine cars caught fire at a car dealership overnight. Fire investigators believe the chain reaction started from a fuel pump in one of the vehicles.

The It's All Good Auto Sales dealership was open and doing business as usual Tuesday, despite the abnormal night sparked by accident.

Fire crews were called to the car lot on South Third Street and Peebles Road after a fire started. The flames caused $29,760 worth of damage.

Investigators say the fire was not suspicious and there is nothing criminal about the case.

According to the fire department, mechanics replaced the fuel pumps in one of the cars Monday afternoon. That is where the fire started.

Nobody noticed the smoke or flames until it had already spread to eight other cars.

The owner of the dealership declined to comment on the fire.
