MARLBORO -- A Pennsylvania couple escaped injury on Saturday morning after their car burst into flames on Hogback Mountain.
More than a dozen emergency responders from the Marlboro and Wilmington fire departments and the Wilmington Police Department responded to a car fire in the parking lot of the Hogback Mountain Gift Shop, at about 11:41 a.m.
According to Marlboro Fire Chief David Elliott, a fire had started in the engine of a Pennsylvania couple's car and quickly spread to the rear of the vehicle.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, the front of the car was fully engulfed and responders worked to try and contain the flames.
No one was injured as both the man and woman were out of the vehicle at the time of the fire, Elliott said.
"It's unclear what caused the fire, but I'd assume it was a mechanical failure," he said. "It's hard to tell and we'll probably never know because so much of the vehicle is melted."
Elliott said the fire isn't considered suspicious. The car is considered a total loss.
