Fire engulfs vehicle
The Cumberland Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to a residence in the 300 block of Clinton Road on Thursday afternoon, Jan 16, in reference to a vehicle fire.
Cumberland Volunteer Fire Department (CVFD) member Ben Pfeiffer said units arrived to find a van engulfed in flames.
Pfeiffer said the blaze was accidental, likely caused by an engine/ electrical malfunction.
The homeowner attempted to put out the flames himself using a fire extinguisher, Pfeiffer added, but was unable to do so.
The fire began to spread to another van parked just a few feet away from the heavily-involved vehicle before units arrived and extinguished the blaze.
Engine 24 and Tanker 22 responded to the incident.
