Vehicle Destroyed Following Browntown Road Fire               

Cumberland County, TN (February 27, 2021) Cumberland County firefighters as well as law enforcement on February 27th went to an area close to the 3,000 block of Browntown Road in response to a vehicle fire. After arriving at the scene, crews found a Toyota Tacoma fully engulfed in flames. The driver, who was able to escape the vehicle without harm, told emergency workers that she had smelled smoke and pulled the vehicle over before the fire spread. Additional details into the accident including what caused the fire to start are still pending.

The United States Fire Administration has found that one in eight fires responded to by fire departments across the country is a highway vehicle fire. Additionally, the organization has found that mechanical failure is the leading factor contribution to the ignition of highway fires. Insulation around electrical wiring and flammable liquids in the engine area are the most common causes of highway vehicle fires.

If you notice that your vehicle is on fire, you should stop your car as soon as possible and turn off the ignition. You should then make sure that you and everyone else in the vehicle gets away from the car and does not go back to retrieve any personal items.
