An early morning fire has destroyed a longtime RV dealership in Marmora, Ontario, Canada.

Crews responded to the blaze at Bonter Marine on Highway 7 just west of the village. OPP tweeted the highway was closed due to downed hydro lines near Marble Point Road.

Fire crews from Marmora and Lake Township, along with nearby Havelock and Stirling-Rawdon battled the blazed, focusing on the chimney area.

“It went up really quick,” said Marmora and Lake fire chief Tony Brownson. “Lots of fuels, ATV parts, tires and stuff – so it went up really fast. We had 16 firefighters from Marmora here; four from Havelock-Belmont-Methuen and four from Stirling-Rawdon fire department.”

On its website, the company says it’s Canada’s oldest Polaris dealer, offering snowmobiles, ATVs and more since 1930. The longtime family business was sold last summer.

Damage is estimated at $3 million to $5 million.
