Original post: According to scanner traffic about 7:40 p.m., one vehicle was on fire in the Rio Dell area on Wildwood Avenue. The vehicle was “almost fully engulfed.” A structure was in danger.

However, the fire was knocked down and scanner traffic indicates that the structure is “no longer threatened.”
