Piedmont Fire Department responded to a car fire at 30 Selborne Drive on Wednesday, June 5 around 2:30 p.m.

Fire Chief Dave Brannigan said the fire started due to mechanical problems when the car’s owner tried to start it. The car’s body had extensive plastic panels that contributed to the large smoke column. “A bit of landscaping was scorched but we quickly put it all out and fortunately no one was injured,” said Brannigan.

The homeowner was not home at the time and in an email to Selborne Drive neighbors thanking them for calling the fire department, said a housekeeper’s car caught fire.
