The cause of a fire Sunday night that damaged an auto repair garage in Hempfield's West Point neighborhood remained under investigation Monday.

Hempfield fire marshal Doug Fordyce said no damage estimate was available for Dinatti's Service Center at 110 West Point Drive.

The fire started at 10:36 p.m. in the office section of the brick building, West Point fire Chief Rex Baughman said.

Smoke spread to the vehicle bays and poured out of the roof, Baughman said.

The business' owner, Chris Johnson, said he was at home Sunday night when he was notified of the fire. He could not be reached for further comment.

Fordyce said the business was open on Monday.

West Point firefighters were assisted by units from the Hempfield and Greensburg areas.
