Information from WYSH Radio
A car was destroyed and the house it was parked next to was damaged early Monday when it caught fire in Briceville.
The incident happened shortly after midnight Monday at a house on Seiber Mountain Lane. Firefighters from the Briceville and Medford Fire Departments responded and put out the fire, which started in a Pontiac Grand Prix, and spread to the nearby house, which was burned through the siding and into the attic, according to the report.
The owner of the car, Adrian Burum, told deputies that the vehicle had been smoking when he pulled up next to the house of Raleigh Seiber, and after he had gone into Seiberâ€™s house, he had heard his car horn sound. When he went outside, he saw the fire and called 911.
Seiber said he did not have homeownerâ€™s insurance, and Burum said he only had liability insurance on the car. The fire has been ruled an accident, and no one was injured.
