Firefighters respond to car fire

Trail firefighters responded to a car fire Tuesday morning at Highway 3B and Redstone Drive.

Tuesday morning, what began as a test drive turned into a red hot affair.

Just after 8:30 a.m., Trail regional fire rescue received an emergency call  reporting a car fire.

Three firefighters from Company 4 responded to the incident, and arrived on scene at Highway 3B and Redstone Drive, where the vehicle was in flames.

A mechanic was test driving a small model sports car up the Rossland hill, when it caught fire, said Grant Tyson, acting captain for the regional fire rescue.

“We arrived on the scene in six minutes, and had it extinguished in nine. Pretty straight forward, no injuries, but the car was destroyed by fire.”

The cause of the incident was not deemed suspicious, and is not under investigation said RCMP sergeant Rob Hawton of the Greater Trail detachment.
