Engine fire heats up car

A leisurely drive down the road became a smoky adventure for one motorist.

The Vernon Fire department says the man was driving down Highway 6 when he lost power in his vehicle and pulled over in the 2300-block, near Galaxy Theatre.

He noticed smoke coming from the front of the car and exited the vehicle before an engine fire broke out.

Crews were quickly on scene and the fire was contained to the engine.

They say because it was an older vehicle, they believe the cause was possibly a problem with the carburetor. The car is expected to be write-off.
