MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  A Murfreesboro auto dealership was the target of arson overnight.

The Murfreesboro Fire Department says it rolled four units in response to a vehicle fire at Star Auto on South Church Street just before 1 a.m. this morning.

Firefighters found a Dodge Charger on fire. A portion of the dealership office and a second vehicle also suffered damage before the fire could be extinguished.

The Fire Department says surveillance video shows an individual pouring a flammable liquid between the two cars just before the Charger caught fire.

The Fire Marshall will investigate the incident.
