(Hanna, IN) - A car was destroyed by fire in Hanna Township on 1500 South during efforts to free it from the snow on Saturday night.
La Porte County Police said the car was engulfed in flames, and firefighters kept the fire from spreading to a nearby barn.
A man and woman were taking turns shifting the car with its engine running from drive to reverse to try and rock it free from the snow and ice beneath its tires. At one point, however, police say there was a loud popping sound and flames spotted underneath the engine. The fire eventually engulfed the entire vehicle.
