Augusta firefighters for the second time this week doused a vehicle fire Wednesday morning.

Augusta Fire Chief Roger Audette said the fire at 183 Northern Ave. was reported around 9:15 a.m.

Audette said the car, a red sedan, was destroyed, but there were no injuries.

“The driveway was long and unplowed, so we had to drag hose lines a long way,” Audette said.

The fire was the city’s second this week. Firefighters on Monday were sent to Pearl Street to deal with a fire that destroyed a Chevrolet pickup truck.

That fire, too, caused no injuries, but it threatened a nearby apartment building.

Audette is unsure how either of the fires started.
