EWING, NJ (Mercer) – Ewing Township firefighters were called out to battle a vehicle fire this evening (Friday, Feb. 17). Volunteers from West Trenton Fire Company were dispatched at 6:54 p.m. to the WaWa located at the intersection of Parkway Avenue and Silvia Street/Scotch Road. When firefighters manning Engine 33 arrived on the scene they found a car, stopped in the middle of Parkway Avenue, already engulfed in flames. Engine 33’s crew stretched a hoseline and quickly knocked down all visible fire. Township career firefighters manning Squad 30 also responded and assisted with overhaul operations by using one of their powered rescue tools to pry open the hood to allow for complete extinguishment of any remaining fire in the engine compartment. Ewing police closed Parkway Avenue and detoured traffic until the burned vehicle was removed by a tow truck.
