Two cars catch fire in Peoria driveway

Posted: Updated:

PEORIA, Ariz. - It was a scary situation Thursday morning as a Peoria family awoke to two cars on fire in their driveway.

Investigators at the home near 91st Avenue and Bell Road are trying to determine how the fire started.

It appears as if the SUV that caught fire was being worked on and then the fire spread to the car parked next to it in the driveway.

The fire did not spread to the home, just left some black charring on the front of the house above the garage.

Neighbors said they heard a swishing sound, looked outside and saw tall flames.

No one was hurt in the fire that broke out around 4:30 a.m. and was quickly put out by responding firefighters.
