to the Monett Fire Department report, the driver's side front brakes on the car at left locked up, igniting the wheel grease. The fire melted the inside of the front left tire before firemen arrived where the car pulled over at 403 E. Broadway and used a portable extinguisher to douse it. Fire Chief Tom Jones, at right, said if firemen had not been able to reach the car quickly, the fire could have easily spread and engulfed the vehicle. [Times Photo by Murray Bishoff]
