Driving tip: Never leave a lit candle in one of your car's cup holders

Live Boston reports that a tow-driver hauling a car down Southampton Street early Saturday morning noticed smoke coming out of the car, and flagged down some of the officers on Mass-and-Cass patrol.

Officers jumped into action and attempted to put out the fire which had spread from a candle in a cup holder but were unsuccessful. Eventually firefighters arrived and using a water car extinguished the small flames.

A water car is another name for a water tender. That vehicle is a water tender designed for off-road efforts, like brush fires. The BFD probably sent a more traditional water tender...
