A vehicle parked in Five Points created a spectacle Wednesday night when it caught fire.
Fire crews with the Columbia-Richland Fire Service arrived around 7:23 p.m. to find the vehicle fully engulfed in fire, and had it out in about 10 minutes, interim Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins said.
The driver had parked near the Men's Warehouse on Harden Street. The fire damaged an adjacent vehicle as well as the awning of the Men's Warehouse building, Jenkins said.
The cause of the fire was not immediately available. The owner, who was in a bar when the fire started, told WISTV that he saw smoke pouring from the air conditioner vent when he approached the Jeep.
The fire department does not routinely investigate car fires, and there are no plans for one in this case, Jenkins said.
