The last hot spot is put out.

A car fire in the 5100 block of Evergreen Way caused a bit of distraction for drivers Saturday morning.

Shortly after 10:00 AM there were multiple calls into 9-1-1 of a car on fire in the parking lot of Barney’s Pastrami.

A young man reportedly had just picked up his car from a repair shop when this happened.

He got out safely and Everett Firefighters were able to put out the fire in quick fashion.

There were no injuries. An investigator was called to the scene to determine the cause of the fire.

Here are MyEverettNews.com photos of the crew from Engine 2 putting out the fire.

    May have nothing to do with repair shop. This vehicle has a active recall from GM, but they don’t have a fix for it yet. Recall says engine can catch fire due to oil leak.i have the same car and seeing this now makes me concerned to drive it
