‘Hot’ car

Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

On Mon­day night, at around 2:00 am, a mem­ber of Am­bu­lance Stanstead no­ticed that a car parked in front of 700 Duf­ferin Street, in Stanstead, had started burn­ing and im­me­di­ately called the Fire Depart­ment. “It took us be­tween twenty min­utes to half an hour to put out the fire. The car was to­tally de­stroyed,” said Firechief James Runci­man. It is sus­pected that the fire to the Hyundai Ac­cent, which had been parked there since about 7:00 pm, was caused by a mal­func­tion of the elec­tri­cal sys­tem.

An elec­tri­cal mal­func­tion is thought to be the cause of the fire that de­stroyed this car on Mon­day night.
