What looked like an early season forest fire was a car fire on Canyon Creek Road after 9 p.m. Saturday night, May 20.

Hamilton Police and the Hamilton Volunteer Fire Department responded to the vehicle fire on the road to the Canyon Creek trailhead west of Hamilton. Department officials said the fire apparently started from the car's electrical system.

There were no injuries and, since the car was parked on the gravel roadway, no trees burned.

The car, however, had been completely consumed by flames by the time firemen arrived.

Investigation continues.
