Car in Springfield engulfed in flames


SPRINGFIELD Mass. (WWLP) – A car on Central Street in Springfield was engulfed in flames Sunday afternoon.

The owner who was standing off to the side, was in the vehicle moments before the car was on fire.

A bystander told 22News he saw the flames and thought his apartment was on fire. Eddie Gonzalaz said, “I was just getting home from work, and I came through the back where I live right here and I just saw flames coming up, I thought uh-oh my apartment is on fire but I saw that there was a car on fire.”

The owner of the car was too upset to talk to 22News, but Springfield police told us no injuries were reported and the cause of that fire is unknown.
