A vehicle fire in a shop on West 12th Street early Wednesday is under investigation by Sioux Falls Fire Rescue inspectors.

Battalion Chief Travis Thom says crews were called around 12:30 AM to a shop behind Next2New Auto at 5117 West 12th Street. He says the car in the shop was burning, although it's not known yet how the fire began.

Crews had to cut through a garage door to get to the fire, and Thom says the vehicle was a total loss.

There was smoke throughout the rest of the building, and firefighters were on the scene until around 7:00 AM.
