You don’t need to be an insurance adjuster to suspect that a vehicle is a total loss after a car fire on I-95 on Sunday.

A photo released by the Westport Fire Department shows melted portions of the vehicle’s bumper, headlights and seared wires and hoses in the blackened engine compartment and inner hood.

According to Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Gootman the three-vehicle accident happened on southbound I-95 between Exits 17 and 16 shortly before 5:45 p.m.

Westport, along with Norwalk firefighters responded to the call.

Gootman said when Westport firefighters arrived they found a car on fire in the left lane.

“Two additional vehicles involved in the accident were in the right lane,” Gootman said in a release. “Westport Engine 4 stretched a single hand line and extinguished the fire quickly with backup from Engine 2. Rescue 3, Westport EMS and Norwalk EMS treated and transported four patients. There were no injuries in the vehicle that was on fire. According to State Police on scene, southbound I-95 traffic was backed up for an extended period due to the fire.

The last Westport Fire Department unit cleared the scene at 6:54 pm.
