6:47 AM: Thanks to the texter who sent the photos from the aftermath of a car fire just before 5 am in the 6500 block of 42nd SW [map] in Morgan Junction. The car caught fire in a carport, they report, adding, “We all got evacuated; no one was hurt.”
SFD has already left the scene and closed the call; we will update when we find out more later this morning.
12:53 PM NOTE: We are now expecting to get that information closer to mid-or-late afternoon, and will update as soon as we do.
2:18 PM: Just talked with SFD Lt. Sue Stangl. She says the fire was ruled “accidental,” with $25,000 damage done to the carport structure, $12,000 to the vehicle, and $500 to its contents.
