Car catches fire in Plains Township bank drive-thru


PLAINS TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — FNCB Bank in Plains Township caught on fire Wednesday morning after a car went up in flames while the driver was using the ATM.

The driver was uninjured, Chief Ritsick says.

Firefighters put out the fire, however the burnt car has not been removed from the drive-thru at this time.

Bank employees were given the authority to go back into the building. The bank has reopened.
