RACINE – Fire caused an estimated $3,000 damage to a vehicle parked near a structure in the 3600 block of Douglas Avenue Thursday evening.
The Racine Fire Department responded just before 7 p.m. The vehicle owner put out the fire with an extinguisher just before firefighters arrived. Firefighters used a thermal imaging camera to check for any hot spots and ensure the fire was fully extinguished.
There were no injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
