One car was destroyed in a fire at the North Kwik Trip in New London Monday, but fortunately nobody was injured.
The New London Fire Department was dispatched around 6 p.m. The driver of the vehicle had been at Festival Foods grocery shopping and upon driving away, he noticed his dashboard smoking, forcing him to pull into the Kwik Trip by the air compressor station.
The fire did not spread, which was a good thing, given the close proximity to the gas pumps. The car was considered a total loss and there was no other damage at the scene from the flames.
