HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Investigators are trying to determine what caused a fire that ripped through an auto shop early Sunday morning.

It happened about 3:40 a.m. at Express Automotive in the 1500 block of 7th Avenue.

Bryan Chambers, Huntington's communications director, says firefighters arrived minutes after the fire was reported, but when they got to the scene -- flames were already shooting through the roof.
