Flames were extinguished but car re-ignited

Fire broke out in a car in the drive-though at Chevron Valley Credit Union on Kern Street Wednesday morning.

The fire was knocked down with a fire extinguisher, but the car re-ignited moments later and the engine compartment was engulfed in flames with a tire exploding from the heat as Kern County firefighters arrived.

The Dodge Intrepid four-door was heavily damaged by the fire.
No injuries were reported.
