AFFTON, Missouri—Two homes were damaged and a woman suffered minor injuries after a vehicle caught fire in Affton Thursday morning.

Officials said a minivan was parked in a driveway in the 8100 block of Normal Drive just before 11 a.m. when it caught on fire. By the time firefighters arrived, the van was fully engulfed in flames.

The fire then spread to the nearest house, causing major damage. A  neighbor’s house also suffered slight damage, mostly to the garage and some siding.

Fire crews were able to quickly contain the blaze, but the minivan was totaled. The owner of the vehicle sustained minor injuries, but was not transported.

The cause of the fire was unknown.
