Car Engulfed In Flames In Fort Thomas Driveway

FTM file. 
Early this morning the Fort Thomas Fire Department was dispatched to the 30 block of Delta Avenue in Fort Thomas for a car fire.

When they arrived just before 2:00 a.m., the car was parked in the driveway fully engulfed in flames.

The firefighters were able to get the fire out and no one was hurt. The cause of the fire is not known at this time.

The severity of the fire surprised neighbors, who woke up to a smell of burnt rubber as the tires had melted into the pavement. At least two of the closest neighbors to the fire didn't see or hear any noise.

Jody Turner, who lives next door, said he worked third shift and we he arrived home this morning at 8:30 a.m., he didn't notice anything different.


"What is crazy is that my wife was up all night with our sick 2 and 5-year old and she didn't hear anything. No sirens, people or anything. They had windows open, it's the summer," he said. "My wife said she was surprised to see that the car caught on fire because she had just seen it being driven yesterday and it seemed perfectly fine."

Bobbie Chinn lives directly across the street and also said barely heard any commotion during the night.

"I thought I heard a siren, but was half asleep. I walked outside this morning and the car was all burned up," she said.

Turner said that firefighters were able to use the hydrant in his front yard to put the fire out.
