Fire Rips Through Kearny Mesa Used Car Lot

The lot on Convoy Street is part of the Pacific Honda dealership

Flames ripped through a San Diego car lot, damaging an office building but sparing dozens of used cars parked nearby.

The fire was reported at 1:19 a.m. Friday inside the Pacific Honda used car sales office at 4720 Convoy Street.

When firefighters arrived, they could see flames and smoke shooting from the windows of the office building.

Just outside the building were dozens of used cars. Just one SUV caught fire, officials said.

Flames were knocked down in about 20 minutes.

Some of the roof caved in on the office. Computers and other office supplies were melted by the intense heat.

The building has been here for about 35 years.

Fire investigators say it was an accidental electrical fire.

No injuries were reported.
