Vehicle, house fire in Bartlett

Bartlett firefighters extinguished a vehicle fire in a driveway that had just extended into the adjoining house when they arrived late Monday afternoon.

A civilian was evaluated for minor injuries at the scene, authorities said.

The Bartlett Fire Protection District received the call to the vehicle fire on the 900 block of Cuyahoga Drive at 5:02 p.m. and firefighters arrived at 5:06 p.m.

The house remained habitable, but damage estimates were not immediately available from the ongoing investigation, authorities said Tuesday.
