A Friday morning fire destroyed a new vehicle belonging to a Martinez business owner.
Ivan Trinidad, the owner of the Fitness Gallery on Enterprise Court, said he was storing a weedeater and a gas can in the back of his BMW X6 when he left
the business just after 11 a.m.
“I smelled gas,” Trinidad said. “I saw the fire. I didn’t have time to do anything but get out of the car.”
Firefighters arrived to extinguish the fire, but it had already destroyed the vehicle.
