Fire Department personnel had responded to the emergency call and proceeded to extinguish the blaze.

A few months ago the Sheriff Deputies responded to an area in Seco Mines next to the railroad tracks where a Sport Utility Vehicle was found also fully engulfed in flames.

Last year another vehicle was found in the Thompson Road area next to the canal also in flames. That vehicle was reported stolen minutes after it was found by the Sheriff Department on fire.
