NORWICH – A soon-to-be-junk van caught fire and burned Wednesday at a city dealership.

Technicians at Christman Motors on South Broad Street were attempting to disable the Ford E-250’s engine as required by the federal Cash for Clunkers trade-in program, fire and dealership officials reported. After running for a few minutes, the engine block got hot and went up in flames, Christman Motors President and Owner Thomas Morrone confirmed.



No one was hurt, and the fire was contained to the front of the vehicle within minutes.
