The Jamesport Fire Department responded to a vehicle fire Tuesday afternoon at a home on Main Road near Herricks Lane. 

Fire crews arrived to find the vehicle fully engulfed in flames at around 3:30 p.m., officials at the scene said. The fire was contained within 30 minutes and no injuries were reported.

The firefighters were concerned at first that the fire could spread to a tree next to it or another car and boat nearby in the driveway. The fire could have potentially spread to the house as well, officials said.

Another concern was the lack of a nearby fire hydrant. The firefighters brought in a tanker truck for water, officials said.

The cause of the fire was not immediately clear.
