-- CAR FIRE at 5:30 a.m. today in the parking lot of Mercy Health Mall, 1010 N. Washington St., Janesville. Owner Anthony Stiklestad, Janesville, was driving his 1992 BMW 318is over Veterans Memorial Bridge when he noticed smoke coming from underneath its hood. Smoke quickly began filling the interior of the car, so Stiklestad attempted to turn into the mall plaza, but missed the driveway and drove the car into a snow bank, said Capt. Bill McAfee of the Janesville Fire Department. Firefighters put out the fire, but not before it destroyed the vehicle. The value of the car was not known. Stiklestad and his two passengers, on their way to work, were not injured, McAfee said. Firefighters were called back to the scene when a report was made that the fire re-ignited. But the flat bed truck driver later realized it was just smoke coming from the car’s battery that had just been disconnected. Janesville police shut down traffic in the westbound lane of the bridge for a half hour and until the fire scene was cleared. City street crews were called to salt the road, which had become icy from the water firefighters used to put out the fire.
