Car Catches Fire on Linden Street

By Caroline S. Engelmayer, Crimson Staff Writer

A car engine burst into flames on Linden St. Thursday evening and burned for roughly ten minutes before firefighters stopped the blaze.

The car’s driver, who declined to give her name, said that, as she was driving, a man walking down the street informed her her engine was smoking and urged her to get out of the car.

“I watched while the car turned into a fireball,” she said.

No one was injured in the fire as of Thursday evening, though the blaze attracted at least one fire engine.

“There was a car fire,” Cambridge Fire Department Deputy Robert L. Walsh said.

The fire took place across the street from a property owned by the Delphic, one of Harvard’s final clubs.
