March 8, 2018—Eight luxury cars were damaged, and two people were taken to the hospital for injuries after a fire engulfed a Stockton, Calif.-based auto repair business on March 7.

The news was reported by KCRA and the Stockton Record.

Smoke quickly turned into large whipping flames that took over most of the structure, fire chief Erik Newman said. Firefighters are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.

“At this time, there is no suspicion of arson,” he said. “Our investigators are putting the pieces together.”

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has a list of fire safety hazards and possible solutions on its website.
