The Storm Lake Fire Department responded to a vehicle fire at 1017 North Lake Avenue shortly before 8:30 a.m. Saturday.

Firefighters observed smoke and flames coming from the engine compartment of a mini-van and extinguished the fire. The fire department determined the fire was caused by a failure in the heater motor.

There were no injures reported but the van sustained an estimated $500 in damage. Firefighters were on the scene for approximately 30 minutes.
