Fire at Fernelius Hyndai

Firefighters in the Soo want to know what touched off a blaze at a car dealership.

It happened at Fernelius Hyundai shortly before midnight last night.

The Sault Ste. Marie fire chief says that when crews arrived, heavy smoke and flames were coming out of the front of the building.

As they worked their way in, they felt a great deal of heat from the storage area above the showroom.

No one was hurt.

The showroom and service area are a total loss, but the dealership’s inventory of vehicles was not touched.
