A three-alarm fire ripped through one of the oldest car dealerships in the area, burning the building down.

The fire started around 11 a.m., Wednesday, Oct. 9, in Port Jervis at the Auto Dreams Group Ltd., at 73 Kingston Ave., which was previously Clark Motors, officials said.

Dozens of firefighters responded to the scene that grew to a three-alarm fire consuming the building. The fire was out by 12:30 p.m.

Port Jervis Fire Department officials were not available to say if how many cars were destroyed or if anyone was injured.

Heavy smoke from the fire caused students at area school to be let out about 15 late, according to the District Superintendent Mike Rydell.

In addition, Rydell said extra buses were brought in to bring walkers directly home.
