A 2015 Chevrolet Traverse caught fire on the 100 block of Ohio Street in Havre de Grace around 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13.
The daughter of the car’s owner was driving it, returned home, then observed flames appearing to come from the car’s engine about 15 minutes after exiting the vehicle.
The one-alarm fire was contained by nine members of the Susquehanna Hose Company in three minutes. It is estimated to have caused $9,000 worth of damage to the vehicle.
The cause of the fire was determined by the state fire marshal to have been accidental due to an engine malfunction.
