The car fire Wednesday evening disrupted the evening commute on Aurora as emergency vehicles responded to a car fire at the Echo Cove Condos, 19428 Aurora Ave N.

One truck made it down the steep drive and successfully maneuvered the narrow passageway around the buildings. At least four others, including the ladder truck, were standing by up on Aurora as well as several aid cars. Northshore Fire sent a unit.

You can see by this photo how close the fire was to the units, and how closely the white car was parked to other vehicles.

Fortuitously the driver had backed into the parking space, so it was relatively easy for fire fighters to get close to the vehicle. They used a saw to cut the hood off, then used the hose to douse the fire.

Shoreline Fire had the flames out quickly. No one was injured and damage was contained.
