A car parked at a Steak ‘N Shake in Middletown, Ohio, caught fire Monday morning, according to the Middletown Division of Fire.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, the 2000 Buick Park Avenue Ultra was unoccupied with heavy fire visible in the engine compartment, according to the fire report.
Before the fire could be extinguished, it extended through the hood and front right tire, officials said.
The vehicle owner, Anthony Monk, told officials he got off working the night shift at a local convenience store and met a friend for breakfast after work. Monk said that while pulling into the lot, he noticed smoke coming from under the hood. He then called 911 from inside the restaurant.
He said the "check engine" light had come on several days prior.
Deputy Fire Chief David K. Adams said there were no injuries.
