OCEAN HILL - Officials are investigating a two-alarm fire in Ocean Hill that left an auto body repair shop and several luxury cars severely burned. The flames broke out at Luxury Automotive Inc. on St. Marks Avenue near Eastern Parkway. Police say they received a call at around 7 a.m., and that 125 firefighters helped battle the blaze. Shop owner Curt Langlaise says he is devastated by the destruction, especially since customers' expensive Range Rovers and BMWs were damaged. "I worked very hard to build this business," he says. No civilians were hurt in the fire, but three firefighters were treated for minor injuries.
