Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas firefighters responded to a fire at an auto repair shop early Sunday morning.

It happened at Quick Lube & Tune at 2424 North Jones Boulevard, near Smoke Ranch, around 12:20 a.m.

When crews arrived, flames and smoke were showing from the shop. The business was closed, so firefighters had to force their way into the business by cutting large holes in the garage doors on the building.

There was heat and smoke damage throughout the business. There was heavy fire damage to the bottom of the roof inside the business.

Two vehicles parked inside the business were also destroyed. Total damage was estimated at $250,000.

The cause of the fire is undetermined, but investigators believe it started where computer equipment and electrical equipment such as battery chargers were located.

There were no injuries reported.
