Vehicle fire on Highway 101 southbound just south of Hot Springs.
Red VW Sedan fully involved.
Fire is out.
Thanks for the report, Roger. Glad this was taken care of quickly. It got a little breezy tonight. One spark and . . .
Every car should have a fire extinguisher in case of a small roadside fire. I bought one last year for my car...just in case. Less than $20. I don't feel super confident about using it, but I plan to hand it to someone nearby who does have confidence to use it.
Years ago we heard it was a good idea to carry a fire extinguisher in the car. Two friends came to a car starting to burn, they jumped out, used their extinguisher and put it out. They felt like Batman and Robin to the rescue! Good idea to have one on hand.
