Commercial structure fire at First Coast Kawasaki

SPECIAL OFFER FOR HISTORIC CITY NEWS READERS

Lt Jeremy Robshaw, public information officer for St Johns County Fire Rescue, announced to Historic City News local reporters that a commercial structure fire erupted from a single motorcycle this morning at about 11:15 a.m. at First Coast Kawasaki in St Augustine.

“The extent of damage is not fully known,” Robshaw told reporters. “A number of motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and a boat stored in the yard suffered significant fire damage.”

According to the incident report, the flames spread quickly from the motorcycle — igniting other new inventory stacked behind the building. A St Augustine South residence, adjacent to the rear of the store, also suffered heat damage, according to Robshaw.

A Fire Marshal investigation began this morning; and, will determine the exact cause of the mid-day blaze. When estimates can be made, they are expected to be substantial; due to the amount of smoke damage that was associated with the fire.
