There were no injuries from a car fire on highway 421 near the Watauga/Wilkes County line on Saturday evening, as Deep Gap Volunteer Fire Department found the vehicle fully involved upon their arrival.
Darin Church, Chief of Deep Gap Fire, tells WataugaRoads.com that they were able to put the fire out, but it was a total loss. Church adds that the cause of the fire appears to be an equipment failure of the braking system.
Jordan Mandell shares with WataugaRoads.com that “You could feel the heat off it driving by”. The fire occurred close to 6pm.
