MESA -- The owner of a Mesa car dealership is assessing the damage after a first-alarm fire ripped through his business.

Firefighters were called out to Berge Ford at Mesa Drive and the U.S. 60 Thursday afternoon.

Part of the roof caught fire. While the cause of the fire has not been determined, crews say it's possible a problem with an air-conditioning unit could be to blame.

While no injuries were reported, the fire destroyed parts of the dealership.
