Car Fire Extinguished on Smith Road

No injuries reported, cause remains under investigation.

The Parsippany-Troy Hills Volunter Fire Association extinguished a car fire just before 1 p.m. Tuesday on Smith Road, just south of the Littleton spur, Parsippany Police said.

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.
