Car starts on fire at Eddy Lane Subway

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Eau Claire fire crews spent a portion of Tuesday afternoon putting out a car fire at Subway on Eddy Lane in Eau Claire. The fire happened around 4 p.m.

The owner of the car told a News 18 reporter he went inside to get food. Another customer came in and said the car was smoking. The car's owner went out, lifted the hood and the car started on fire. 

Subway was evacuated because of the car's close proximity to the business. Fire crews used thermal imaging to check under the Subway's roof to make sure the fire did not spread. 

Customers were let back into the business in less than one hour.
