car fire wallaceburg

Wallaceburg firefighters responded to a car fire this morning on Piccadilly Crescent.

Details are scarce at the moment, however a neighbour was able to snap a photo of the newer model Hyundai vehicle going up in flames.

“No one was in the car and no idea why it started,” the neighbour said.

“Car was apparently brand new.”

The neighbour said fire crews were at the scene immediately to douse the flames, with the Chatham-Kent police not far behind.

“Don’t see that every morning,” the neighbour said. “This poor lady had just picked this car up on Tuesday.”

We’ll provide more details when they become available.

Here is a photo of the fire aftermath:
