LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON, Utah — A vehicle caught on fire in Little Cottonwood Canyon Thursday, and photos from the scene show crews extinguishing the blaze.
Eric Holmes, a spokesman for the Unified Fire Authority, said the car caught fire shortly after 4 p.m. as the vehicle was eastbound in the canyon.
All occupants made it out of the car safely. Traffic was brought to a standstill for about 20 minutes as a result of the fire.
Holmes said it was fortunate the fire didn’t spread to the nearby trees and brush. He said they suspect a mechanical issue was the cause.
