BRIDGEPORT - Authorities say an overnight fire at a Bridgeport business was probably intentional.

Police say they responded to a call about a fire at Family Garage, Inc. shortly after 11 p.m. They suspect gasoline was used to start the fire.

One vehicle burned, and authorities say several others were doused.

Assistant Fire Chief Dominick Carfi says cases like this are often the work of young people who just don't appreciate how much is at stake.
