Car fire at Lyndon Station
Interstate off-ramp at Lyndon Station was affected Tuesday afternoon as a result of a vehicle fire. The State Patrol said at 5:45pm a vehicle fully engulfed in flames started a large grass fire at the Interstate 90/94 east exit ramp at mile marker 79. The off-ramp was never closed but traffic was impacted as a result of fire trucks in the area. Lyndon Station Fire Chief John Kruz said, “the driver of the car had a medical problem and he lost control. The vehicle missed the exit and went into the ditch causing the car to ignite and start on fire. The driver and passenger got out safely, but the driver was medically transported for observation. The fire spread to the peat moss, similar to the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge fire. The fire fighters contained the fire to about an acre and was on the scene until 3:30am Wednesday morning.
