SALISBURY, Md.- The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating an accidental car fire that occurred early Tuesday morning at Boulevard Motor Sales in Salisbury.

Officials said the fire occurred on Tuesday shortly after 12 a.m. at Boulevard Motor Sales, located at 1815 North Salisbury Blvd., when a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer caught fire.

Fifteen firefighters from Salisbury Fire Departments 1, 2 and 16 responded to the blaze and were assisted by a Salisbury police officer, who discovered the fire while on patrol. It took about 20 minutes to get the fire under control. Investigators said they determined the fire started due to a battery charging operation accident.

Three additional vehicles housed in the 40' by 40' metal strand automotive repair facility were also damaged in the fire.
