On Tuesday morning the Glasgow Fire Department responded to a report of a vehicle fire at IGA Express Shell on West Main Street.  Upon arrival, firefighters found the fire had been extinguished by an IGA employee using a portable fire extinguisher.  The fire was located under the hood and was caused when the owner of the 2004 Toyota Camry, Frank Wright, had taken the oil fill cap off to put a quart of oil in the motor and forgot to put the cap back on. The heat from the motor melted the cap which dripped onto the exhaust pipe and caught on fire. There were no reported injuries and no damage estimate given.  Firefighters were on the scene around 15 minutes.
