Columbia firefighters respond to abandoned vehicle on fire

Columbia firefighters said no one was injured in a vehicle fire Monday morning.

The vehicle was near the intersection of Battle Avenue and St. Charles Road.

Firefighters said when they arrived shortly after 7:30 a.m., the car was fully engulfed in flames.

Shortly after responding, ABC 17 News heard reports that firefighters asked Columbia police to assist with the investigation to find out why the abandoned vehicle caught fire.

ABC 17 News crews saw both a Boone County deputy and Columbia police officers at the scene.

Firefighters said it took about five minutes and about 250 gallons of water to extinguish the fire.

Firefighters said a Boone County Fire Protection District tanker engine was also called to the scene as a precaution.

ABC 17 News is working to find out if police are investigating the circumstances leading up to the abandoned car catching fire.
