An automotive repair shop in northern New York was destroyed by a fire Jan. 10.

Crew members with the South Plattsburgh Fire Department responded to reports of a blaze just before 6 p.m. at Simpson's Auto Repair, located in Schuyler Falls, NY.


"Firefighters arrived on the scene to find a well-involved fire in the business," the department later wrote in a social media post.


Firefighters worked through single-digit temperatures in an effort to contain the fire. The building was deemed a total loss by crews; no injuries were reported during the response.


The cause of the fire was determined to be accidental, according to South Plattsburgh fire officials.


Crews from the town and city of Plattsburgh departments were also dispatched to the scene. Additional aid was requested from six other departments in the area.
