Authorites were dispatched to a vehicle fire approximately 5:30 Thursday afternoon. The car was on U.S. 1, just north of Vass, near the 24/27 exit. When the fire trucks arrived, the vehicle was heavily engulfed in flames; however, they were able to quickly control the fire. According to officials, there were no injuries.
Authorities shut down both northbound lanes for almost an hour and traffic was detoured. Responding to the scene were fire departments from Vass and Cameron.
