Fire damages local car dealership
A long-smoldering fire damaged a Central Texas car dealership Thursday morning.
The fire occurred at the Family Fine Cars in the 2500 block of Franklin Drive in Waco.
Firefighters were not sure exactly what time the fire began but said it appeared to be smoldering for quite a while before a passerby called 911 around 6:30 a.m.
The two lanes of northbound Franklin Drive were closed for about an hour as crews worked to knock down the fire.
The fire caused extensive smoke and heat damage to the building.
The cause is under investigation.
