HOWARD - A vehicle was destroyed on Wednesday from an engine fire in Howard.

At about 8:50 a.m., six Howard firefighters responded to a vehicle fire on South Maple Street in Howard, where they found the engine of a 2002 Dodge Intrepid engulfed in flame, according to the Miner County Sheriff's Office.

The fire was likely caused by electrical problems, the sheriff's office said, but firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze within 15 minutes.

The vehicle was parked and had no occupants. No one was injured, but the Intrepid is believed to be totaled.
