One vehicle was left destroyed Sunday afternoon after what is believed to be a mechanical fire.

Trail firefighter Lee Depellegrin said nobody was injured and no additional property damage was inflicted.

The fire began on Macleod Avenue sometime around 4 p.m. with the call being received at 4:28 p.m.. Firefighters arrived on scene within ten minutes and had the blaze extinguished by 4:45 p.m..

“The vehicle was parked quite close to a residence but they knocked it down before any damage was caused,” Depellegrin said.

A total of five Rossland firefighters were on scene along with two from Trail.

The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation.
