A Porsche 914 caught fire this morning in front of Genki Sushi at 5th N and Mercer around 8:30am. A reader sent in not only a tip, but also a video of the incident – click below:
At one point the fire was hot enough for the gas in the engine
to combust, pushing the car forward about 8 feet. No injuries reported by Seattle Fire Department, but the car certainly looks like toast.
