Burbank car fire in underground lot under investigation

A car fire in an underground, residential parking structure on Monday remains under investigation after it was knocked down in about 15 minutes.

The fire, in the 300 block of West Alameda Avenue, was reported about 2:40 p.m., Burbank Fire Capt. Peter Hendrickson said, adding that a sprinkler kept the fire contained to the vehicle.

Westbound Alameda was closed for about an hour as firefighters worked to put the fire out, he said.

The fire was in the underground parking garage of a multi-story apartment complex and it was not immediately clear how the car caught fire.
