The Dauphin Fire Department were on the scene Monday morning of a car on fire on Forrest Avenue West.

A resident tells CKDM he heard a "big huge bang" come from out on the street around 10:15 a.m., and saw the blaze coming from the vehicle's engine compartment.

A section of Forrest Avenue West was blocked off by RCMP while emergency crews were on the scene. 

The Dauphin Fire Department say it is not suspicious and the fire was caused by the heater running inside the vehicle.

There were no other damages as a result of the fire.
