Ann Arbor firefighters managed to extinguish a vehicle fire Monday at a gas station on Washtenaw Avenue before the flames put the gas pumps in danger.
Firefighters were dispatched at 1:10 p.m. Monday to the 3000 block of Washtenaw Avenue for a report of a well-involved vehicle fire, officials said. The Buick Rendezvous was about 10 feet away from gas pumps but the flames were contained to the vehicle.
The blaze churned out heavy black smoke and brilliant flames, which were out in about 20 minutes after firefighters arrived on scene. Officials said it took about three minutes for firefighters to arrive on scene.
The vehicle was mostly destroyed and fire officials did not have a damage estimate immediately Monday. The scene was cleared shortly after 3 p.m. Monday.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. No one was injured in the fire.
