A fire destroyed a vehicle recently in Lunenburg County.

The vehicle fire took place in the area of Stone Mill Road and South Hill Road on Saturday, July 27. According to Kenbridge Fire Department Chief Richard “Dickie” Harris, the cause of the vehicle fire was undetermined.

“It probably started in the engine compartment,” Harris said.

Harris said the driver reportedly began experiencing trouble with the car while driving down the highway. Harris said the driver stopped the vehicle to determine the problem, and realized the area of the vehicle under the hood was on fire.

There were no injuries as a result, Harris said, though the vehicle was a total loss.

“It was in a full blaze when the fire department arrived,” Harris said.
