JUST IN: ACFD Battles Car Fire on Columbia Pike

by ARLnow.com — February 3, 2017 at 3:45 pm 0

A convertible caught fire along Columbia Pike this afternoon, prompting a brief closure of the eastbound lanes of the Pike.

The fire broke out just before 3:15 p.m., as the car was parked on S. Edgewood Street, near the entrance to the Rite Aid.

Arlington County firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire, in the car’s engine compartment. The eastbound lanes of Columbia Pike have since reopened, though Edgewood Street remains closed as a tow crew works to haul away the car.
