The Greenville Fire Department extinguished a car fire Saturday morning, after a vehicle caught flames.

The incident happened just before 4:30 a.m. 

The Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Office also responded to scene. Once they got there, they found a car completely engulfed in fire. It was so large, it was threatening to spread to a house nearby.

The fire was put out before that could happen and while the car was totaled, there was no damage to the house. No injuries have been reported either.

The Greenville Fire Department says the car hasn't moved from the same spot in over two months.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the MSCO.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
