Car Erupts in Flames in Front of West Endicott Home
Firefighters from two departments were called to extinguish a blaze that quickly engulfed a vehicle in a town of Union neighborhood.
The car burst into flames in front of a residence at 604 Paden Street in West Endicott. The fire was reported just after 5 p.m. Thursday.
People who lived nearby said they believed someone had been driving the vehicle when the blaze broke out. The vehicle was engulfed as the first West Endicott Fire Department truck arrived at the scene.
West Corners firefighters responded to assist after a second alarm was sounded.
A New York State Police trooper at the scene was attempting to locate the owner of the car.
Thick, black smoke rose into the air for several minutes until firefighters extinguished the blaze.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.
Paden Street was closed between Burns and South Grippen avenues for more than an hour because of the fire.
The car came to a stop just a few feet west of the Endicott village line.
