Man Nearly Escapes Car Fire

BANGOR - Bangor Fire and Police responded to a car fully engulfed in flames around four this afternoon near the off ramp of I-395 on Main Street.


Upon arrival the Jeep could be scene emitting thick black smoke from the rear of the vehicle along with aggressive flames.


The owner says if it wasn't for a couple of bikers, he would have never realized the Jeep was on fire.


"I was on the interstate when it started spittering and sputtering. A couple of bikers said [I] was on fire. So I got out of traffic, but didn't have much stuff to put it out with. If I'd have had water, I would have put it out," Joseph Ruest, the owner, explains.


Ruest says the fire was cause from a wire shortage. The vehicle is likely totaled.
