Car Fire Halts Traffic
December 5th, 2011
Traffic was stopped for just over 30 minutes last evening on westbound Interstate 94 at the Smiths Creek Road overpass in Kimball Township as crews extinguished a car fire. It is reported that the female driver of the car was experiencing car trouble and pulled over underneath the overpass when her engine started smoking just before 6:30 p.m. Sunday. By the time firefighters arrived on scene, the car was fully engulfed in flames and crews remained on scene until just shortly after 7 p.m. Neither the woman nor her child passenger was injured in the incident and the cause of the fire is unknown.
