The Paris Fire Department extinguished a vehicle fire Saturday night in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

The PFD was called to the scene at 6:11 p.m. as a 2006 Nissan Murano was reported to be on fire at the store parking lot, 1210 Mineral Wells Ave. Three trucks and six firefighters responded, and when they arrived, they saw a fire coming from the sunroof of the vehicle.

The fire was extinguished and the PFD left the scene 20 minutes later.

The driver of the car was listed as Aashanna Lewis, who had two addresses, one at 345 Rison St. and one in Indianapolis.

The fire caused estimated damage of $7,500 to the vehicle and $500 to the contents.
