Man’s Car Catches Fire Day After Purchase

(Fargo, ND) — A Fargo man is once again in need of a new car, even though he just bought one. Edward Grubb says he noticed the smell of fuel as he was driving his new car on the Exit 66 off-ramp Tuesday morning; one day after he bought it. The vehicle then quickly burst into flames, causing him to jump out and get the attention of a nearby tow-truck driver who thankfully had a fire extinguisher, which he used to knock down the flames. Firefighters were called to the scene and they helped put out what was left of the blaze. There’s no word yet on how the fire started.
