CAR FIRE SHUTS DOWN SECTION OF ROUTE 58
Amherst – A car fire Saturday afternoon shut down both lanes of travel on Route 58 just south of Park Ave for about an hour.
The car was traveling northbound when the fire started. All occupants were able to exit the car without being injured.
Amherst Police Officers quickly shut down traffic until the fire could be extinguished.
There was a delay because Amherst Firefighters had their hands full with a single car crash with entrapment on the Ohio Turnpike at the time of the fire. Mutual Aid Firefighters were called to battle the fully involved car fire.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
There were no injuries reported.
