POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A fire inside Bobby's Auto Repair & Collision that broke out around 9:15 p.m. Sunday destroyed two cars but was quickly doused by firefighters, according to City of Poughkeepsie Fire Chief Mark Johnson.

Firefighters arrived on scene within minutes of receiving the call for a car on fire at the shop located on Smith Street, Johnson said.

Once on scene, firefighters found the two vehicles on fire and heavy smoke conditions, Johnson said.

While both cars were destroyed, but the building only received smoke and water damage, he said.

Both fire and police are investigating the cause of the fire. Johnson explained that due to the high volume of fuel and electrical items in the shop, it was difficult to tell right away what started the fire.

The department was assisted by the Arlington Fire District, Fairview Fire District, and Mobile Life Services.
