LYNNFIELD, MASS. (WHDH) - An investigation is underway after an SUV went up in flames in the showroom of a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Lynnfield early Thursday morning.
A security guard patrolling the area of Flagship Motorcars of Lynnfield on Broadway around 4 a.m. called 911 after noticing a glow coming from the front window of the building, according to Lynnfield Fire Chief Glenn Davis.
Firefighters responding to the scene found that a sprinkler system contained the flames to a Mercedes SUV but the building had been filled with smoke.
Crews dealt with freezing temperatures, which caused the parking lot to ice over.
One firefighter may have sustained a finger injury from falling on the ice but no one was transported to the hospital, Davis said.
The SUV, which was gutted by the fire, was wrapped in a blue tarp and towed away from the dealership.
Hours after the first fire broke out, a second vehicle parked in the lot outside of the showroom started smoking and smoldering.
The State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
