Auburn firefighters John Williams, Robert Zaucha and Damon Meier doused flames shooting from a Volkswagen sedan Sunday afternoon on Lincoln Way in Downtown Auburn. Capt. Cory Zander said that the car was not occupied when fire crews arrived. The unidentified female occupant was able to remove her belonging before the car went up in flames around 4:30 p.m. Sunday. The cause of the fire is unknown, however, Zander said it appears to have started in the engine compartment. The vehicle received major smoke damage, but no one was injured.
