A Hazleton man suffered minor injuries in a car fire on Saturday.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says 45-year old Wade Stevens was driving southbound on Palace Road when he noticed smoke coming from the hood of his car. Stevens pulled over and discovered the carburetor had started on fire, which was spreading to the rest of the vehicle. The car became fully engulfed in flames.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to the scene.
Stevens suffered minor injuries to his hand.
His car, a 1969 Chevy El Camino, was a total loss.
