COLUMBIA — A woman and her baby were in a Jeep Cherokee when it caught fire Sunday afternoon.
Two Columbia Fire Department engines responded to the 1:30 p.m. car fire at Women's and Children's Hospital, 404 N Keene St., though only one was needed to put out the fire, firefighter Chris Sturm said.
Sturm speculated the fire started on the right side of the engine, near the fuel injectors and electrical wires, since the rubber on that side was completely burnt away.
Neither the mother nor the infant were injured in the incident.
