N-B Links: Preventing car fires

Firefighters from three departments spent about four hours Saturday afternoon battling a blaze in a large garage at a residence on Ind. 116 northwest of Bluffton.

The call was placed at 2:40 p.m. after Phil Habegger tried to start his 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the garage. When he turned the key, he heard a loud bang and then heard a sizzling sound coming from underneath the hood.
