It was determined that there were no occupants in the vehicle. The FD arrived and quickly extinguished the fire and the surrounding brush which had ignited. A few police officers at the scene received oxygen due to smoke inhalation, but thankfully there were no serious injuries and no emergency personnel had to be transported.
