 -- The State Fire Marshals' Office has been called in to investigate a vehicle fire that took place Sunday on Maple Ridge Road.

Huron County Sheriff's Major Greg Englund said two deputies, along with North Fairfield firefighters and Willard EMS, responded to the scene.

"The vehicle was engulfed in flames from the dash on back," Englund said.

Once deputies arrived, Englund said, North Fairfield fire had the blaze extinguished.

"There was no driver or passenger in the vehicle," he added.

"The vehicle was a black Dodge Dakota stolen out of Ashland County," Englund said. "The plates were registered to a black van out of Shelby, so the plates were obviously switched."

Englund said it appears the Dodge Dakota was "ditched" and "burned."
