Lincoln City woman lost her only means of transportation when her van went
up in flames Monday afternoon. But its valuable cargo was saved.
Dispatchers received a 911 call just after Noon today dispatching North
Lincoln Fire & Rescue to a car fire at 120 SE Mast, in Lincoln City. As
fire crews arrived they reported fire and smoke in a van parked just off
Mast Avenue in the Lakepointe Apartments parking lot. Firefighters managed
to extinguish the fire quickly containing it to the engine compartment,
saving the interior portion of the vehicle and its contents.
Some of the memorabilia in the van had extreme sentimental value. Which
firefighters retrieved from the vehicle and handed over to the grateful owner.
The van fire was about 30 feet away from any structures. Damage was confined
to the van and some foliage near it.
Information about the exact cause of the fire and the estimated value of the
vehicle is pending at this time.
