— Eight cars caught on fire on Saturday night in a Durham car lot. The cars were sitting on the DJL Auto Center on North Roxboro Street.

Investigators are still working on the scene Sunday morning. But, the owner told WRAL news he suspects arson is the cause of the fire.

The cars were badly damaged and likely won't be able to be salvaged, officials said.

DJL Auto Center is a repair garage that also sells cars.
