Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s District 9 responded to a car fire close to Scales Elementary School around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon.
Upon arrival, the crew discovered a 1998 Audi A6 fully engulfed in flames. The fire was extinguished within five minutes of the crew’s arrival.
The owner was just about to turn in to the school when he noticed smoke coming from the dash. He was able to exit and get a safe distance from the vehicle to wait for MFRD. No injuries were associated with this incident.
According to Captain/Shift Inspector Randy Rae, the fire appeared to have started in the dash area and was most likely due to an electrical issue.
