Car catches fire on Highway 80

Anyone traveling on Highway 80 near the Knott-Perry County line late on the afternoon of Jan. 27 might have noticed a bizarre sight. A car caught fire on the highway at around 5:30 p.m. The Fisty and Rowdy volunteer fire departments responded to a call about a black Volkswagen Beetle, engulfed in flames. Kentucky State Police dispatchers said that no one was injured and the fire was due to an electrical problem in the vehicle.
