VIRGINIA BEACH-Investigators are trying to determine what sparked the fire that damaged or destroyed five vehicles Sunday night.

Photos on the Va. Beach Fire Department Facebook page show firefighters at Tidewater Auto Auction in the 600 block of S. Military Highway just before midnight.

Crews responded to the initial call of a car on fire but found several vehicles engulfed in flames.

Firefighters stayed on scene for nearly two hours.

The shop was closed at the time; no one was hurt.

Spokeswoman Amy Valdez told Monday that the fire is not suspicious and that the vehicles were parked in the locked area in the back.

The security guard there said the vehicles were government cars set to be auctioned this weekand that the fire was electrical in nature.
