A bystander saw flames shooting out of a side wall at Riverview Auto, just after nine o’clock Saturday morning.
When crews arrived, they found that a car part had fallen off a furnace vent and had made contact with the wall, which started the fire.
Crews got the flames under control quickly.
Bucksport fire Chief Craig Bowden say they’ve seen this kind of thing before.
":Not typical, but this time of year, with this weather, you do get stuff…snow buildup on the outside vents and it causes problems.":
Chief Bowden says the damage is estimated at less than a hundred dollars, and the dealership says that it should be ":business as usual": Monday.
