Fire officials are investigating a weekend fire at a car dealership that may be arson.
The fire broke out around 8pm Saturday evening at the Valley Car Dealership on Cage Blvd in Pharr. Officials say when firefighters arrived and found the office at the dealership engulfed in flames. Contracts, state permits and all the keys to the cars in the lot were located inside the office. The owners of the dealership are still open and are operating the business out of a RV for now.
Although the case is under investigation, the owner suspects this is a case of arson since he recently had two trucks on the lot stolen.
