Fire destroys auto shop in the Boundary

I thought my house was on fire when I woke up smelling smoke at 5 a.m.

But it was an auto shop, A.R. Automotive, two blocks away in the Boundary that caught fire early this morning.

Power was still out on that block at about 8:30 a.m. Channel 4 has pictures. The white Volkswagen Rabbit convertible that had been parked in fron of the shop for several weeks is smoked. I noticed this shop worked on a lot of vintage cars, and they had a pretty cool mural painted on the building. Too bad.
