SAMOA – A torched vehicle on Vance Avenue burned up transmission lines this morning. The fire broke out around 5:30 a.m. in an abandoned camper left on the roadside of the Samoa street, a popular dumping site for vehicles and other trash.

It's not clear which, if any power, telephone or other utility customers were affected.
