Parking lot car fire shuts down busy convenience store

Posted: Updated:

A car fire in a convenience store parking lot caused heavy traffic delays along a busy road in Cumberland County.

It happened just before 5:00 a.m. Thursday at the Super Wawa on the 3900 block of State Highway 47 in Maurice River Township.

Firefighters there extinguished a car that witnesses say that parts of the vehicle were engulfed in flames.

While the fire has been contained, officials shut down all access to the Wawa parking lot, causing heavy traffic and several near-accidents along State Highway 47.

An NBC 40 reporter on the scene says that authorities were still turning away all vehicles from the Super Wawa more than an hour after the fire was reported.

As of 7:30 a.m. Thursday, an employee from Wawa Store #759 said that the store was open, but would not confirm if the burned car had been moved, or if vehicles were being allowed into the parking lot.

There's still no word on any injuries from the incident.
