LIMA — A fire destroyed a minivan Monday in Lima, the cause of which has yet to be determined.

According to the Lima Fire Department, at 3:52 p.m., firefighters were called to a report of a vehicle on fire in the 400 block of North Elizabeth Street. They arrived to find a Pontiac minivan fully engulfed in flames.

The fire was difficult to extinguish, according to the department, due to the minivan’s fuel tank rupturing, both prolonging and increasing the fire. However, once the fuel was consumed, the fire was able to be contained, with firefighters remaining at the scene until 5:06 p.m. No one was injured during the incident.

The department is not offering any speculation as to the cause of the fire at this time, as the investigation is still continuing.
