Fire destroys car on Hemlock Street Thursday eveningSubmitted: 03/14/2013
Story By Lane Kimble & Lex Gray


RHINELANDER - Someone visiting a home on Hemlock Street in Rhinelander will need to buy a new car. Fire completely destroyed the vehicle parked at 409 Hemlock Street early this evening.

Video was sent to us by Zak Sarkauskus.

Fire fighters responded around 5:35 p.m. The entire vehicle, from the windshield back was on fire. Crews were able to put it out within 15 minutes.

The damage extended to the house too. The vinyl siding melted. Fire fighters went inside the home to make sure no one was hurt.

The car was not running at the time. The fire department says there's no way of telling how it started because it's burnt so badly.
