A fast-acting Washington Township police officer was able to extinguish a fire in a patrol car Sunday morning.
Police Cpl. Saverio Fasciano, who also happens to be a former township fire chief, put out the fire in the driver's area of a parked 2013 Ford Interceptor at about 11:36 a.m. after police spotted a haze vehicle, according to Lt. Rich Skinner. The SUV was parked in the municipal lot and not running at the time of the fire, he said.
