Police are investigating a car fire this morning. The small sedan caught fire while sitting in the driveway of a residence.

Brewer Police could be seen taping off the area around 31 South Brewer Drive. In the parking lot was a badly burned vehicle. We have a call into the police to ask whether the fire is considered suspicious.

The pictures here were taken by former Brewer City Councilor Larry Doughty from the porch of his nearby residence. He said his family was alerted to the fire by the sound of a honking horn. There's no word on whether anyone was injured. Damage to the house was minor and limited to the porch area.

The State Fire Marshal's office has been called in to investigate.
