Orange – Highway Vehicle Fire

A vehicle caught fire on the highway in Orange last Wednesday morning.

Officials are currently investigating an incident on Route 15 North, between Exits 55B and 56. According to reports, a vehicle caught fire on the highway, temporarily closing the entire northbound side. The incident was first reported a few minutes before 10:00 a.m., and it took an hour for authorities to reopen the thoroughfare. Injuries were reported, but officials have yet to specify how many were involved in the accident. Authorities are still investigating the crash and will release more info when appropriate.

It’s reasonable to say that modern vehicles have become much safer, if not more reliable.
