Fire crews were called to a extinguish flames engulfing a parked car outside Orchard Park Mall, around 5:30 p.m. Monday.
Captain David Latimer says he isn’t exactly sure what caused the vehicle to catch on fire.
“When we arrived there was quite a bit of smoke and flame coming out from under the hood, and we haven’t seen the owner around yet but they are probably going to get a surprise when they come out (of the mall).”
Latimer says the cause might be mechanical.
No one was in the vehicle and it was not running when the incident occurred.
