Two-alarm fire damages Burns Harbor car dealership

(BURNS HARBOR, Ind.) A two-alarm fire Wednesday night at a Kia dealership in northwest Indiana likely started in a vehicle that was being repaired, authorities said.

Authorities responded to a fire at the northwest Indiana dealership at 241 U.S. Highway 20 about 11:17 p.m. Wednesday, Burns Harbor Fire Chief William Arney said. Firefighters arrived to heavy smoke and fire in the garage area of the dealership, he said.

Crews cleared the scene by 1:17 a.m., and no injuries were reported. The interior of the dealership sustained “heavy damage,” Arney said.

The fire is believed to have begun in a vehicle that was being repaired, he said. Authorities will continue investigating Thursday.
