While no official report has been released as of early this (Friday) morning, according to scanner traffic, Irwin and Defiance Fire and Rescue were dispatched to a location near 300 Front Street, following a report of a motor vehicle accident, with the vehicle fully engulfed in flames. It apparently had come to rest against a pole. The accident was reported at 11:50-p.m., and within about one-half hour layer, officials on the scene had requested a Medical Examiner.
