ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A significant portion of All City Auto Parts located on North Clinton Avenue was declared a loss after fire spread throughout the building early Monday morning.

Firefighters responded to 1525 North Clinton Avenue around 5:30 a.m. for the report of burning cars.

Once at the scene, they began extinguishing the building alongside the cars which was quickly taken over by flames. Officials declared a “three-alarm fire” due to concerns of chemicals that may have possibly been inside the shop, and were able to bring the fire under control in around two hours.

Authorities say one of the two commercial buildings associated with the auto repair shop was deemed a total loss. No injuries were reported in this incident.

Majority of Clinton Avenue was closed for an extended period of time but has since reopened.

Police are combing the surrounding area to determine what caused the vehicle fires.
