Minivan Destroyed By Fire Near Humboldt
02/10/2016

(KLZA)-- A minivan was destroyed by fire about six miles southeast of Humboldt Tuesday afternoon.

Humboldt and Dawson firefighters responded to the call about 1:40. 

An unidentified driver, not from the local area, was driving the minivan on a minimum maintenance road. After getting stuck, the driver continued to try and drive the vehicle out of the mud and it caught on fire. High winds caused the flames to spread to a nearby CRP field.

The fire started to spread toward a windbreak of a nearby farmstead, but firefighters were able to put the fire out before it reached the windbreak. 

When the fire departments arrived on the scene the minivan was already a total loss, and because of the strong winds, the efforts were put into stopping the fire from spreading to the farmstead.

No injuries were reported.
