ANDREWS, TX (KWES) - A Thursday morning fire caused major damage to the Benny Boyd car dealership in Andrews.

The Andrews police chief said the fire broke out around 5 a.m. and the fire is suspicious.

He said that there are two people of interest but their names are not being released.

We're also told the State Fire Marshal's office was called to help out with the investigation along with the Andrews County Sheriff's Office.

A representative with the dealership tells the Andrews County News the damage from the fire was mostly due to the flames.

The fire affected the business's showroom, the sales room and parts of their southern building.

They also say items were stolen from the business.

Benny Boyd said over the phone they will be closed for at least 48 hours and hope to re-open their doors this Saturday.
