Car Fire Spreads to Palm Springs Home

News Staff

A fire that started in an older-model sports car spread to a home in Palm Springs Thursday, but no injuries were reported.

Firefighters were sent late Thursday morning to the residence near Canon Drive and Sunny Dunes Road.

The homeowner told the Desert Sun that he started his 1985 Porsche, but turned it off after smoke began to fill up the car’s interior. He then went back inside his home, only to be alerted by a neighbor that fire was coming out of his car’s muffler. The flames then spread to the home’s roof.

A fire department representative could not immediately be reached for comment.
