Firefighters were called to a parking lot at Naylor Heating and Air Conditioning, 455 North Service Rd., E., at around 12:20 p.m., where they discovered one car completely engulfed in flames with the blaze rapidly spreading to a second vehicle.
The blaze, which sent massive plumes of thick black smoke into the air, was quickly extinguished.
Both vehicles were destroyed.
The cause of the fire is unclear, however, Deputy Fire Chief Andy Glynn said the weather can be a factor in these types of vehicle fires.
“We do see a bit more of a spike when there is this type of weather, drizzly with a lot of moisture in the air,” he said.
“The electrical systems in the vehicles can short out and fires can occur.”
