WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) - Seven cars were destroyed in an overnight fire at a Westerly car dealership.

The Westerly Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2qnGi35 ) officials are investigating the cause of the early Friday morning fire at the Tasca Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership.

Westerly Fire Chief John Mackay says firefighters were able to put out the fire in less than an hour.

Authorities say no one was at the dealership at the time of the fire, and none of the surrounding buildings were damaged.

Westerly Police Capt. Shawn Lacey says the cause is unknown and it’s too early to say whether it was arson.
