RENO, Nev. (AP) — A small fire early Friday morning has shut down the National Automobile Museum in Reno.

Museum officials, in a statement Friday, said the fire broke out in the museum lobby and caused "limited damage" to the building and an Ed "Big Daddy" Roth custom-made trike on display near the main entrance.

They say the museum was closed Friday and will remain closed until cleanup is complete.

Fire sprinklers extinguished the blaze, and there were no injuries.

The cause of the 2:45 a.m. fire is under investigation.

The museum, which features more than 200 vehicles, is one of the nation's premier automobile museums. Most of the cars are from the collection of late casino magnate Bill Harrah.
