so, some kinda car, a model assumed to have four wheels, caught fire.
however, it also could have been a truck, SUV, Jeep, or other motor vehicle.
it is unknown whether any one was in the car at the time. this fire occurred at some random time prior to 4p.m. somewhere east or west bound.
was it LDCFM that responded?
was anyone injured or not?

this "article" has almost no details at all!

Dispatch called it in wrong. We just re-reported what they said. They have some new people at dispatch. We corrected it within a few min.

The car is parked in the driveway of the house right at the intersection. It's horribly burned and someone wrote "forever" on the driver's door.

to add more to the hilarity of it all, the police scanner blog chick says the fire was at "23rd and Oskaloosa"

Other than the owner or operator of the car that caught fire is anyone really interested in this kind of story. It all seems kind of silly to me that we take up time and space to report this pointless stuff. Unless there is big property damage or injuries why bother. Just another day in the neighborhood.
