Car Catches Fire While Being Towed Down Meth Mile

Early Saturday morning, at approximately 01:30 hours a two truck driver flagged down officers in the area of Southampton Street on Methadone Mile after a car he was towing began smoking.

Officers jumped into action and attempted to put out the fire which had spread from a candle in a cup holder but were unsuccessful. Eventually firefighters arrived and using a water car extinguished the small flames. No further information is available but it’s probably safe to say candles should not be used in cars.
