Bloomfield fire under investigation; auto repair shop a ‘total loss’

An auto repair shop in East Bloomfield was destroyed by a fire early Friday morning.

The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office reports that they responded, along with several local fire departments to 6756 State Routes 5&20 in Bloomfield to Bloomfield Autobody and Repair for a working structure fire.

Deputies arrived on scene to find approximately 30 foot flames coming from the structure. However, those first responders were unsure what was inside the building, which prevented them from entering and fighting the fire inside.

Residents of the attached apartment were out and only some of the vehicles and other property were able to be removed from the building. Strong winds caused the fire to spread quickly and the building was determined to be a complete loss.

No one was harmed or injured at the fire.

Investigators are working to determine the cause.
