Three Napa City Fire Department engines were originally dispatched to initial reports of a house fire at 3400 Baxter Ave. and Trancas Street at 6:40 a.m. Monday morning that ended up being a lone vehicle on fire in an apartment complex parking lot.
“Three engines initially were sent because it went out as a house fire but it ended up being a car fire,” Napa Fire Battalion Chief Dan Hall said.
A news tip said Napa Fire and CalFire units responded to a report of a structure fire at the CVS Store on Trancas, and that the vehicle on fire was a Chevrolet Avalanche.
“I heard the fire went out pretty quickly,” Hall said. “It didn’t affect any other vehicles that I’m aware of.”
Hall said the cause is under investigation and couldn’t say whether the fire was suspicious. A damage estimate was not available.
