Emporia firefighters were called out to a vehicle fire early Tuesday.
Firefighters were toned out to 2220 West Seventh just after 4 am and doused the fire quickly. Fire Capt. Bill Harmon says the owner, John Stimatze, and his wife drove into the Flint Hills on Monday night without issues, but a neighbor noticed the SUV on fire Tuesday morning and called 9-1-1.
Nobody was in the vehicle at the time of the fire, which has been listed as electrical in nature. The SUV was a total loss.
