Ve­hi­cles de­stroyed in park­ing lot fire

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - LOCAL - Staff report

At least one car and an SUV were de­stroyed and other ve­hi­cles dam­aged when a car in a Laud­erdale Lakes apart­ment com­plex park­ing lot caught fire and burned.

A call shortly be­fore 2 a.m. Mon­day in­di­cated that one car was on fire at 2550 NW 39th Way and flames were quickly spread­ing to other ve­hi­cles nearby, said Mike Jach­les, a spokesman for Broward Sher­iff Fire Res­cue.

So­cial me­dia images fromthe fire show one car fully en­gulfed in flames. The car that ini­tially caught fire was de­stroyed as was at least one or two oth­ers. Some other nearby ve­hi­cles were charred.

By first light, the de­stroyed ve­hi­cles had been towed away, but ash, glass and de­bris lit­tered the park­ing spa­ces where they had been.

No in­juries were re­ported, Jach­les said.

The cause of the fire was not im­me­di­ately known.
