Vehicles destroyed in auto dealership fire


SEVERAL AREAS WERE BLOCKED OFF. NO ONE WAS HURT. STILL NO WORD WHAT CAUSED THAT LEAK. RIGHT NOW THE SEARCH FOR CLUES AFTER FLAMES BREAK OUT AT A SUDDENBURY CAR DEALERSHIP. NEARLY TWO DOZEN VEHICLES WERE DESTROYED OR DAMAGED OVERNIGHT. NEWSCENTER 5’S TODD KAZAKIEWICH IS THERE. THE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO COULD BE KEY IN THE CASE BECAUSE THE FIRE BROKE OUT IN THE AREA OF THE PARKING LOT FAR BACK FROM THE ROAD. BY THE TIME IT WAS FINALLY NOTICED, THE FLAMES WERE SHOOTING HIGH INTO THE SKY. FUELED BY GAS, OIL, AND EVERYTHING ELSE IN THOSE CARS. WE HEARD ABOUT THIS ON CHANNEL 5 THIS MORNING, AND OBVIOUSLY, IT’S A DISASTER. THIS IS THE INTO US THAT HERB CHAMBERS WOKE UP TO FROM THE EYE OPENER, AN OVERNIGHT FIRE IN SUDBURY. SOME OF THE VEHICLES ARE TOTALLED. WE CAN SEE TWO OR THREE ARE BURNED, LITERALLY DOWN TO THE POINT WHERE THEY’VE MELTED IN A POOL OF ALUMINUM ON THE ASPHALT. I GET CHANNEL 5 ON MY PHONE, AND I SAW THIS, AND THE GOOD NEWS IS NOBODY GOT HURT AND THEY’RE JUST CARS. SOME OF THE VEHICLES BELONGED TO CUSTOMERS ACCORDING TO THE FIRE CHIEF. INVESTIGATORS SPENT THE MORNING SIFTING THROUGH RUBBLE AND SCRUTINIZING SURVEILLANCE VIDEO FOR CLUES. HERB CHAMBERS VISITED A DEALERSHIP MID MORNING TO SEE THE DAMAGE FIRSTHAND. HE SAYS HE’S HOPING TO GET CUSTOMERS INTO REPLACEMENT VEHICLES VERY SOON. WE HAVE INSURANCE, YEAH, BUT THEN THE QUESTION BECOMES, IS IT OUR INSURANCE, IS IT THE CUSTOMERS’ INSURANCE? I HATE TO HAVE THE CUSTOMER IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS. AND THE FIRE WAS NOTED BY SOMEONE DRIVING BY HERE ALONG ROUTE 20. AGAIN, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT 20 VEHICLES, SOME ARE HIGH END AND THE DAMAGE COULD BE THE HIGH SIX FIGURES AND PERHAPS EVEN TOPPING A MILLION DOLLARS. AT THIS POINT INVESTIGATORS SAY IT’S TOO SOON TO TELL WHAT
