A quick and aggressive interior fire attack, made by Westport’s firefighter/paramedics last night, kept a structure fire contained to the office space of an auto sales and repair shop on State Road.

A call came into Westport dispatch just after 11:45 p.m. Wednesday for flames showing at 735 State Road (Route 6), Advanced Motors Sales and Services.

According to the Westport Fire Department, the office space suffered significant fire damage, however, the remainder of the shop only received some minor to moderate smoke damage.

Engine 3, Engine 4, and Car 2 responded to the call, aided by off-duty and on-call firefighters. Mutual aid was received from Dartmouth Fire District 3’s Engine 1 and Unit 2.

Investigators are looking into an electrical appliance that may have been the cause of the blaze.

There were no injuries.

Fire crews cleared the scene at approximately 2:00 a.m.
