OSWEGO, Ill. – Authorities say an e-cigarette may be to blame for a car fire in the parking lot of a suburban Wal-Mart over the weekend.

A Chevy Trailblazer up in flames Saturday in the parking lot of the Oswego Wal-Mart.

Fire fighters rushed to the scene, but it took several minutes before they extinguished the blaze, which spread to a second car.

Authorities suspect this monster blaze started from an e-cigarette left in the Trailblazer’s center console.
