MAYWOOD–Maywood Firefighters were called to the scene of an automobile fire on the Eisenhower Expressway this afternoon. The fire occurred right off of the eastbound 9th Avenue exit ramp at around 1 PM this afternoon. An elderly male was able to evacuate the automobile before it caught fire. He was the only passenger inside. According to Fire Chief Craig Bronaugh, it took about twenty minutes to extinguish the fire. Although an exact cause is unknown, the owner suspects that it may have been due to engine failure. If you’re heading that way, please proceed with caution. VFP
