Fire Breaks Out at Car Dealership

An afternoon fire damages several cars at a Kia dealership near the Lloyd Expressway.
Several cars are damaged after an afternoon fire at an Evansville car lot.

It happened just after noon at Evansville Kia Mazda Volvo at the Lloyd Expressway and Stockwell Road.  Evansville Fire officials say a contractor working on one of the cars suffered minor burns and a few firefighters were treated for heat related illnesses.

"We had a service that was repairing a car. Then a compressor caught fire, then that fire spread to a few of our vehicles on the lot," says Doug Duell of Evansville Kia Mazda Volvo. "If the firefighters weren't here quickly, it could've been a lot worse."

The dealership says it did not close since the fire was in a far corner of the lot.
