Multiple vehicles were damaged by fire Wednesday afternoon at a towing company in Bryan.

At least 5 vehicles were damaged in a lot at Ronnie's Towing and Recovery in the 2400 block of Clarks Lane just before 5:00 p.m.

Thick smoke could be seen for miles coming from the yard after the fire quickly spread from one vehicle to the next.

Investigators with the Bryan Fire Department were on scene along with firefighters.

The Bryan Fire Marshal's say the fire was likely caused by the battery that was still connected to the car shorting, and sparking. They also said the outside heat that day could have played a part.

Reportedly, nobody was at the business when the fire started and nobody was injured, firefighters said.
