If you’ve been concerned about the burnt-out Range Rover on Rugby Road (between Foster and DeKoven), we have some good news for you: The skeleton-of-a-vehicle is expected to be gone within several days, a worker at Community Board 14’s Department of Sanitation garage told us today.
Earlier this month, the car exploded into flames – which firefighters managed to quickly extinguish. We’ve learned from neighbors who spoke to the FDNY that the cause was likely something wrong with engine.
After the fire was extinguished, neighbors asked the owner to remove the wreck from the street – there were concerns about it being a magnet for vandalism. While neighbors noted the owner was polite to them, he wished instead to remove the license plates and leave the vehicle for the city to remove.
Let us know if that happens (or doesn’t) – you can shoot us an email at email@example.com.
