Firefighters from the Racine Fire Department are looking for the owner of a car that was on fire in the 2700 block of Olive St. at 10:34 a.m. Tuesday.

A passerby called 911 after they saw that a car was on fire. The crew from Engine 5 responded and put out the fire. They searched for the owner of the car, but the listed owner — Christopher Edward Dyess — was no where to be found. A fire investigator was called to the scene, and the car was taken to the city’s impound lot.

The estimated loss is $1,600. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but the fire started in the engine compartment.

It is unknown if there were any injuries. The owner of the car is encouraged to call the Racine Fire Department for further information.
