The cause of a fire at a Compton auto repair shop on the 1200 block of Alameda Street was not determined. The fire was reported just after 7 a.m. Saturday.

The commercial fire was so large that firefighters called to the scene had to summon more help to put out the fire.

The shop was closed at the time of the fire and there were no injuries.

Officials say it appears the building is a total loss.
