California Dealershop Fire Consumes 70 Motorcycles

October 28, 2014

Authorities say a fire at a San Jose, Calif., dealership destroyed as many as 70 motorcycles.

Fire officials received calls about the blaze at GP Sports Watercraft & Cycle store a little after 5 p.m. Sunday.

San Jose Fire Capt. Reggie Williams says two-thirds of the building was involved in flames by the time firefighters arrived. The two-alarm blaze was under control about an hour and a half after it was reported.

The store was closed at the time, and there were no injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but Williams tells the San Jose Mercury News arson is not suspected.

According to its website, the store sells motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, scooters and watercraft.
