Car Fire Extinguished on Smith Road
No injuries reported, cause remains under investigation.
Officer Earl Kinsey said a man driving a 1999 black Toyota Camry reported exiting Interstate 80 onto Smith Road and hearing a loud noise before seeing smoke and flames.
When Police Officer Michael Ruggier, Parsippany Volunteer Ambulance and District 6 firefighters arrived at the scene, they found the Camry's passenger compartment filled with smoke and saw fire coming from the vehicle engine, Kinsey said.
The driver, Kinsey reported, had already left the vehicle prior to Ruggier's appearance.
The fire was quickly extinguished and there were no reported injuries, according to Kinsey. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
