Multi-Vehicle Crash Causes Car to Ignite in Flames in Newark's Ironbound Section


Police in Newark are investigating a multi-vehicle crash that caused a car to ignite in flames in the city's Ironbound section Saturday night. 

At approximately 3:15 a.m., Newark East Ward Emergency responders were dispatched to the intersection of Van Buren and Malvern Street to investigate reports of a crash. 

Police arrived and found as many as four cars involved in a collision at the intersection with one of the vehicles on fire at that location. 

Firefighters stretched a line to knock-down flames that began extending to a building, but no one inside was injured. 

The cause of the wreck has not been released at this time.
