Vehicle bursts into flames at a home in Chippewa County


Eau Claire (WQOW) – Some quick thinking prevented what could have been a serious fire in Chippewa County this evening. 

An SUV inside a garage at a home near Lake Wissota burst into flames.  The owners had been working on the SUV when it happened.  They were able to hook it up to a truck and tow it out of the garage before the fire could spread.

The Chippewa Falls Fire Department then arrived to put out the flames.  No one was hurt.
