Car catches on fire

A car caught on fire in Port Hardy while the driver was en route to a service appointment

At 7:20 a.m. on June 2, Port Hardy Fire and Rescue responded to a fire at E J Klassen’s Motorcade.

A 1994 Rolls Royce that was parked in front of the service department began emitting smoke from its engine.

The Port Hardy Fire and Rescue Department responded with three trucks about eight minutes after a call was made to 911 about the incident.

The firefighters used hoses to put out the engine fire quickly.

Norman Darling, assistant service manager at E J Klassen Motorcade, says that the owner of the vehicle in question was on his way to the dealership for a service appointment, and once he drove the car onto their lot, fire began to come out of the left hand side of the car.

Darling reports that an E J Klassen employee ran out with a fire extinguisher, but was unable to open the hood of the car.

The owner of the car was uninjured.
