ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Firefighters in Aberdeen did not have to travel far to extinguish a blaze in one of the city's unmarked police cars.

The battalion chief for Aberdeen Fire and Rescue tells the American News that firefighters walked across the street to put out the fire that started in the car's engine Monday afternoon.

The car was in the Aberdeen Police Department parking lot.

Chief Randy Meister says he was in a meeting at the time and could see the smoke from his office window.

No injuries were reported.
