Londonderry auto shop fire likely caused by smoking

LONDONDERRY - A local auto shop sustained minor damage during a structure fire Wednesday afternoon.

Fire crews arrived at Emerald Isle Auto Sales,  214 Rockingham Road, shortly after 3 p.m., Chief Darren O’Brien said.

According to O'Brien, carelessly discarded smoking materials likely caused the fire.

On arrival, firefighters encountered flames at the front of the building extending through the front windows as well as a landscaped area in the front of the building.

The fire was contained within 10 minutes. Several people working inside the building had exited prior to firefighters' arrival and no one was injured. One front room sustained minor fire damage.

Derry and Manchester fire crews assisted at the scene, with Derry crews also providing station coverage.
