Car on Fire Blocks I-66

A car caught on fire on eastbound I-66 near Rosslyn tonight.

The car, said to be a Volkswagen bug, was fully engulfed between I-66 and the entrance ramp from Lee Highway when firefighters arrived on the scene, just before 8:45 p.m.

The fire was quickly extinguished, but not before causing a backup. All lanes of eastbound I-66 were blocked for a time.
