Car fire under Blue Line tracks caught on video

April 10, 2014|By Mick Swasko, @swasko | RedEye

A sizable car fire under the Blue Line tracks near California and Fullerton avenues in Logan Square last night was caught on video.

Dave Fried, a Logan Square resident and filmmaker, said he was leaving a show in the area when he saw the car already in flames around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. After calling 911, he said, he realized he had his camera and began filming. Fried sent the video to RedEye early Thursday morning. 

Fried said it did not appear anyone was in the car, and firefighters were able to douse the flames quickly.

In the video, a Blue Line train could be seen passing over the flames. 

It's unclear if there was any damage to CTA property. RedEye reached out to the agency for comment.
