Car Combusts at ABC Liquor Store in Wake Forest

Nothing like a flaming car at the front door to slow business a bit. I'm sure some just walked around it.

On Thursday afternoon around 3 PM a car parked in front of the ABC Liquor Store, over near Lowe’s Home Improvement, decided while its owner was inside buying booze, the car would get lit.

A customer checks out the car as she leaves the ABC store with a brown bag in hand. One hottie checking out another.

Now there is nothing funny about watching your car burn but having it burn in front of a fully loaded liquor store can be both a blessing and a curse. If the fire was to spread there would be a lot of combustible material nearby. And trust me, nothing can start a charcoal grill like some 151 rum. On the other hand, once you car is one fire it might just be time to turn around and grab another bottle of something special. You’re going to be there for a while.

A number of Wake Forest Fire Department units were dispatched and on scene but it looked like Wake Forest Engine 2 got the bulk of the action.

Members of Wake Forest Fire Department Engine 2 finish policing the scene and prepare to head back home to their station.

Not to ruin the story for you but as usual the Wake Forest Fire Department put the fire out quickly and handled it like pros.
