A Ford Thunderbird coupe was destroyed by fire Tuesday afternoon in the 1600 block of Third Street in Port Townsend. There were no injuries, according to East Jefferson Fire Rescue.

At 1:39 p.m., Sept. 29, EJFR was toned to a reported car fire. Firefighters arrived to find a Ford Thunderbird fully engulfed in flames. The fire was quickly knocked down, but not before the car was destroyed, according to EJFR.
