Car fire at New Hampshire Ave and Upshur Street tonight around 11:15pm. MPD said a neighbor called it in. I spoke to her and she said was walking her dog along Upshur, and saw the car burst into flames approximately around 11:15. She said saw one person standing at the corner of 5th and Upshur when the car went up, and said that person walked away (either didn't care, or something else). The fire department looked to be concentrating on the engine compartment. I wasn't able to get closer or ask questions as don't have my MPD press pass (yet).
