The owner of this 1983 Ford Mustang was driving through Oak Park the morning of Aug. 19 when he noticed smoke coming from underneath the hood. At Division Street and Monroe Avenue in River Forest, he noticed that the engine compartment appeared to be on fire and he stopped the car.

He was not able to extinguish it himself and asked a nearby resident to call police. The man told Fire Department officials who arrived on the scene that he had recently done work on the car's fuel pump and carburetor.
