Police said Saturday they are still trying to determine the cause of a fire that gutted the Big Valley Ford dealership in Portales.
Police Capt. Lonnie Berry said fire investigators have sealed off the building so they can take their time examining the scene.
“Some of the guys who were on scene talked about an area in the shop where some boxes were stored,” Berry said “ That area might have been the source of where the fire had been, they’ll look into that and talk to several more people.”
Firefighters responded to the call at 6:15 p.m. Friday. Officials are still not able to put a dollar estimate on the damage.
