Around 5:40 a.m., a ladder truck arrived at the scene to help crews combat the flames.

Blair Fire Chief Dave Aten said most of the fire was in the middle bay toward the east side of the building. They had to get the door out of the way to access it. Aten said one vehicle was in the bay that was on fire and six or seven others were inside the building. They were new vehicles.

No one was inside the building when the fire started.

The investigation into how the fire started remained ongoing.

Crews from Blair, Kennard and Ft. Calhoun responded to put out the flames.
