VW Bus Fire

Firefighters examine a vintage Volkswagen van that caught fire in Burger King last Saturday.

The engine compartment of a 1968 Volkswagen bus ignited in the Burger King parking lot on Teaticket Highway at 8:20 AM on Saturday, September 9.

“It was on fire and 50 percent involved when we got there,” Fire Lieutenant Jeffry H. Waggett said. “We quickly knocked it down and no one was injured,” he said.

The female driver of the van told emergency personnel that she heard a grinding noise as she was driving and pulled into the Burger King parking lot to check it out. When she got out of the car, she saw the front end on fire.
