Car Ignites on Highway 20

The Pot­ter Val­ley Fire Depart­ment and the Cal­i­for­nia High­way Patrol responded to a car fire along High­way 20 just west of the Lake County line around 4:30 p.m. yes­ter­day when the dri­ver of a black Lexus sedan lost con­trol and aban­doned the car after hit­ting a mail­box and a tree. The Ukiah Daily Jour­nal reports the car ignited but fire­fight­ers extin­guished it before the flames spread to the sur­round­ing vegetation.
