LEWISTON, Maine — A series of explosions led to a fire at an auto dealership in Lewiston.

Firefighters said the fire seemed concentrated at one corner of the building where the siding was melted from the heat of flames. The source of the explosions wasn’t clear.

There were no reports of injuries.
