Forest Hills MBTA parking lot.

 On March 1, 2022 at approximately 4:50PM  the operator of a 2015 Hyundai was travelling on Washington Street near the MBTA's Forest Hills Station when he observed black smoke emitting from under his hood area. The operator drove into the MBTA's Forest Hills Parking lot to check on the issue. Upon entering the parking lot the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames. The operator was able to safely get out of the vehicle and move away from the burning vehicle. Transit Police officers assigned to the South District responded as well as the Boston Fire Department. BFD personnel successfully and safely extinguished the fire and the vehicle was towed from the scene.
