WINOOSKI, Vt. - There was a fire at Pecor Auto Center on Main Street in Winooski Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters say the fire was called in as an electrical fire. While they are not yet how the fire started, it did damage the business.

"Anytime you have the smoke damage at least in fire it's a pretty heavy fire," Winooski Fire Captain John Spittle said. "So it's hard to tell damage wise dollar figure. But that will be evaluated later."

No one was hurt in the fire.

The fire forced several blocks of the street to be shut down right before and during the afternoon commute. Traffic was backed up in nearby neighborhoods.
