Fallen power lines spark fire at Tampa car dealership

TAMPA — Fallen power lines sparked a fire at a Tampa car dealership early Monday.

A 5 a.m. caller reported that at least one car at Jerry Ulm Dodge Chrysler, 2966 N Dale Mabry Highway, was on fire.

The extent of damage was not immediately clear.

Rick Morera, spokesman for Tampa Electric Company, said Monday morning's wind and rain seems to have knocked down the wires, but crews were still working to confirm that.

Morera said just a handful of utility customers were briefly without power after the incident.
