Cars and Garage Damaged
Five vehicles and an auto-repair garage were damaged this morning (Tuesday, 4 August) during a fire at Craftman Auto on Sussex Drive, off Owen Roberts Drive.
The Cayman Islands Fire Service received the report from 911 at 8:54 a.m. and dispatched three fire trucks.
Responding officers found the cars and garage engulfed in flames on arrival, but quickly extinguished the blaze.
The fire completely destroyed three vehicles; damage to the garage and two other automobiles was also severe.
The origin and cause of the fire is currently under investigation. However, Deputy Chief Fire Officer Doorly McLaughlin indicates: "While the fire does not appear to be of suspicious origin, preliminary findings point to accidental ignition."
