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.

    Burning bug? No, that would be a firefly.

    The past and the future… all the same with the bug. Wonder if VW was dumb enough to use a magnesium block on the new ones too… great for those rode side bonfires!

    What kinda bug-old or new?
