ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - No one was hurt in a fire at an automotive shop in Roanoke Wednesday.

A vehicle inside Reed’s Automotive on Orange Avenue NE, just west of 13th Street, caught fire. That led to other things inside the building catching fire, according to a Roanoke Fire-EMS battalion chief. The fire has been extinguished.

An investigation from the Fire Marshal’s Office determined the fire was accidental. Damages to the structure and its contents are estimated to be $475,000.
