  • Everyone got out safely
  • A man and a woman were on a test drive
  • Car fire in the parking lot of In N Out Daiquiri

It was a nice, warm, partly sunny day today in Lufkin and a local couple were just looking to purchase a new-to-them vehicle.

According to the Lufkin Police Department, around 1 PM the Lufkin Fire Department was called out to a report of a vehicle fire in the 500 block of North Timberland Drive.

Once firefighters arrived on the scene, there were flames coming out of the hood and undercarriage of a grey late-model Ford Fusion sedan. You might have seen this in the parking lot of In N Out Daiquiri, formerly Jacks Records and Tapes.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire, while officers from the Lufkin Police Department provided traffic control in the area. This occurred right when everyone was trying to get back to work after lunch.

There Was A Car On Fire Today On Timberland Drive In Lufkin

There were two people in the car when the blaze started. A man and a woman were on a test drive, and noticed smoke coming out of the air conditioning vents.

Once they pulled over and stopped the vehicle in the parking lot of In N Out Daiquiri, flames quickly engulfed the vehicle. Luckily they escaped the car safely and no injuries were reported.

I didn't recognize which used car lot the vehicle came from, but there are quite a few in this area. You might be able to recognize the bright orange dealer tags.
