Clear video shows moment Sterling Heights Chevrolet dealership fire started

- One week after a massive fire swept through Buff Whelan Chevrolet, surveillance video released shows the moment it went up in flames.

The video shows a cleaning crew buffing the floor of the body shop in Sterling Heights.

Then the machine comes in contact with a flammable chemical - possibly gas.

The fire quickly spreads out of control.

Meanwhile, figures on how much damage was caused aren't expected until next week.

The owners say they are still open for business, operating in other parts of the complex that weren't affected by the fire.
