EUGENE, Ore.-- A car fire in north Eugene caused concerns that it might spread to a nearby home Sunday, officials said.
Eugene-Springfield Fire said it received reports of a car fire on Powder River Lane around 11:30 a.m. Crews found the car fire in the driveway of a two-story home. They determined that the fire was getting closer to the house, and sent more fire crews in case it spread.
The house's side started to melt, but officials said damage was minimal. The car was completely destroyed.
According to authorities, the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
