El Dorado firefighters responded to a report of a car on fire in the Senior Center parking lot around 3 p.m. Monday. According to Fire Chief Ken Nakaten, the vehicle was parked and unoccupied, and its owner was inside the Senior Center.
"Somebody noticed it smoking," he said. "It wasn't being driven at the time. The fire pretty well destroyed the engine and the vehicle is probably a complete loss." Nakaten believes the fire, which was contained under the hood, was electrical. There were no injuries caused by the fire.
