Fire at Campbell Toyota


A Thursday night fire at a local car dealership has been ruled as accidental.

Chatham-Kent firefighters responded to commercial fire alarm at Campbell Toyota about 7:30 p.m. Thursday evening. They arrived to see smoke coming out of the rear of the building.

While several firefighters went up onto the roof, another team entered the garage area and found it full of smoke. Inside the garage, a vehicle was engulfed in flames.

Chatham-Kent Fire officials said the team quickly doused the flames and prevented the fire from spreading to other vehicles in the bay or to other parts of the building.

No one was injured and damage is estimated at $100,000.
