FAIRFIELD — A passenger car caught fire for unknown reasons early Monday afternoon, sending a plume of white smoke swirling into the air in the downtown area.

The car came to a stop in the left turn lane of northbound Pennsylvania Avenue near Texas Street. Police briefly blocked northbound traffic as firefighters made quick work of the fire, which looked to have started in the engine compartment.

No injuries were reported.

    If only the police can solve the murder problems this quick... instead of ten murders a year and maybe two convictions. Just my own opinion

    That's their job. That's what we're paying them for. We should expect and be given that effort from all those hired to look out for us.
