MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A fire at a dealership torched several trucks.

The fire happened at Wolfchase Chrysler Dodge Jeep.

Two trucks are completely burnt and appear to be total losses. Another truck received some damage to the back.

An employee said the total damage to the used trucks is $100,000.

"I was actually on the back of the line and I saw smoke front then I saw fire,” employee Donnie Woods said. “I noticed one of the bushes was on fire and one of the trucks was, so I immediately called 911. They got here pretty fast and by the time they got here it had already spread to two other trucks."

A fire marshal said the drought likely factored in starting the fire, but they are investigating the blaze and do not suspect foul play.
