This afternoon, Kanielle Hernandez had just parked her car when it erupted in flames in the Mariana Bracetti Plaza lot on Fourth Street between Avenue B and Avenue C... the FDNY (the nearby FDNY Engine 28 Ladder 11) quickly responded to the blaze... EVG contributor Stacie Joy was on the scene... Hernandez doesn't know how or why the fire started but speculated that rats may have chewed through wires in the engine. (She had noticed some rat-chewing damage last night.) Thankfully no one was injured, though the car is in bad shape.

We heard from two readers about a possible explosion this morning on East Houston between Avenue C and Avenue D.
Turned out that a car parked along the eastbound lanes near Pitt caught fire. Thankfully there weren't any reports of injuries.
The Post had a dispatch on it:
No one was in the blue four-door vehicle at the time, and there were no injuries, officials said.
They said liquid was leaking from the car before the fire and that the incident is not being considered suspicious.
Three FDNY units and 13 firefighters responded to the scene and put out the blaze, officials added.

Don't have much, if any, info about this... a car caught fire early this morning/late last night in the westbound side of 14th Street at Second Avenue ... the FDNY quickly extinguished the blaze (and there is a firehouse on the block...)
Thanks to @jcastro_nyc for the photos!
