Two cars destroyed, third heavily damaged

Two cars were completely destroyed and a third was damaged following a triple car fire Friday night. 

The incident happened on St. Clare Avenue in the parking lot of a nearby apartment building.

When firefighters with the St. John’s Regional fire department arrived on scene, two of the vehicles were completely engulfed in flames and a third nearby vehicle was just starting to smolder. A second pumper truck was called in to hook up to a hydrant down the street because the closest hydrant was actually just feet away from the blaze and too close to connect to fire hoses.

The fire was out within minutes but not before the damage had been done to the cars.

There was no word on the cause of the fires.
