Crews in Winchester battled winter weather while battling a fire.

Patrolling police officers reported seeing smoke coming from the Rod Hatfield car dealership around 5:00 this morning.

That's when crews found an office building and two garages on fire.

Firefighters say there were added threats in this situation including the gas in the cars on the lot potentially catching fire, the high winds making it possible for the flames to spread quickly, the cold, and some fire hydrants.

The fire was contained to the building, but they were all destroyed.

The dealership also lost a car that was in one of the garages.

Investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the fire.
