Investigators are trying to determine what sparked a fire at an auto repair shop in southwest Houston.

The flames broke out just before 4am Wednesday morning at Bellcrest Automotive on Wilcrest at Bellaire. No one was hurt, but the fire damaged the shop and 12 customer cars.

"I haven't faced that situation before, but we will do what we have to do," said owner Jay Patel.

He says he has owned that business for 20 years.
