Fire Destroys Hundreds of Motorcycles at Dealership

ESCONDIDO, Calif. – An Escondido motorcycle dealership was destroyed by fire Saturday night, according to fire officials.

The building was fully engulfed in flames as firefighters were called at about 10:30 p.m. to the Moto Forza dealership in the 500 block of North Tulip Street.

“Just watching all of these beautiful bikes just go up in flames watching tanks pop, it’s devastating,” said witness Emily Bradsher, who said she could see the heavy smoke and flames from the freeway. “I noticed the flames were at least 100, 120 feet over the roof.”

One day later, the small Escondido business is now barely recognizable. General Manager Chris Cordato and the owner were picking up the pieces Sunday.
