Flame-broiled: Car Catches Fire Next to Total Auto Repair in Easton, MA

A car caught fire on the back of a tow truck next to an auto body shop on June 25.

Easton firefighters responded to Total Auto Repair at 278 Washington St. for a car fire around 3:20 a.m.
When firefighters arrived, they found a car on the bed of a tow truck fully inflamed.
“The vehicle caught fire and some of the truck was burning,” said Easton Fire Chief Kevin Partridge.
On one side of the tow truck, another car on the ground began to catch fire, and the auto body shop was on the other side of the truck, Partridge said.
“It was right near the building,” he said. “The outside of the building was burning, but we were able to extinguish the fire before it extended inside.”
On June 27, firefighters still hadn’t determined the cause of the fire. Partridge said it wasn’t clear if the car had just been towed to the shop or how much damage the tow truck sustained.
The inside of the building was not damaged.
