RFD responds to car fire
At approximately 2 p.m. Wednesday, the Ruston Fire Department responded to a car fire at the Exxon station on Tech Drive. Schuyler League, assistant chief and paramedic with the Ruston Fire Department, said the owner of the car reportedly turned the vehicle on and it caught fire. League said motor oil ignited when the car roared to life creating a spark and heat. The owner had reportedly complained that the transmission wasn’t working correctly, which could be the cause for the fire.
