Auto Dealership Fire

 

PORT JERVIS —Auto Dreams, an auto dealership on Kingston Avenue in Port Jervis, was destroyed in fire that broke out late Wednesday morning in a building on the back of the car lot and quickly spread to the front showroom. Formerly known as Clark's Auto, it had been purchased by John Altadonna. Fellow car dealer Eddie Reiss said Altadonna had renovated much of the building. A mechanic who worked there said he lost 16 motorcycles stored in back. Vehicles in the showroom were also incinerated. Everyone escaped without injury. Port Jervis aerial trucks were still dousing the fire an hour after the first alarm came in at 11:24 am.
