Suspicious Fire Investigated in Hillcrest

Officials reported to the Journal News on Thursday that a fire that destroyed a Hillcrest auto shop is being investigated as suspicious. The fire began around 3:00 AM on Thursday and burned through the Hillcrest Service Center, officials stating that the flames reached a heat strong enough to soften steel beams within the building, as well as destroy cars. There were no explosions on the property and the fire did not spread to any neighboring buildings. The service station was closed at the time and according to officials they are investigating the cause, which at this time is unknown, so arson has yet to be ruled out.
