An automotive service business in Placentia is a total loss due to a fire that broke out on Saturday afternoon.

Around 3:30 p.m., fire crews responded to Matt's Auto Service on Swans Road, where the building was completely engulfed in flames.

Officials said the garage was not open on Saturday, so nobody was inside the building.

There were no injuries, and there was no damage to any adjacent structures.  

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire, but the RCMP does not believe the fire to be suspicious in nature.
