A Victorville vehicle fire caused some traffic delays on Thursday, December 15, near Palmdale Road. A red Scion caught fire at the intersection of Palmdale Road and Mariposa Road around 2:47 p.m. It was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

Firefighters responded to the scene and quickly extinguished the fire. Traffic slowed on Seventh Street while firefighters fought the blaze. Traffic was back to normal around 4 p.m.

It is not yet clear what caused the vehicle fire. Authorities are investigating the incident.

Why do Vehicle Fires Start?

Vehicle fires can start for a number of reasons. Fuel leaks, electrical fires from batteries or starters, and exhaust systems issues can all contribute to a car catching fire. However, most of these issues are avoidable with proper vehicle maintenance. The best way to reduce your risk of having a vehicle fire is to have your car checked each time you get an oil change. If you have an issue that needs addressed, get it taken care of as soon as possible.

“Proper maintenance is an important responsibility of owning a vehicle. We’re glad no one was hurt in this vehicle fire and we’re grateful for the first responders who put out the blaze,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
