Those navigating 195 East between Marion and Wareham during the Friday morning commute may have experienced a traffic jam. The apparent cause of the backup was a car fire.

At 7:40 a.m. on Jan. 10, Massachusetts State Police responded to reports of a disabled vehicle in the left travel lane of 195 eastbound west of the rest area in Wareham, a state police spokesman told WBSM.

A tower and cruiser were dispatched to the scene to aid a 2002 Subaru Legacy, but when police arrived, they discovered that the vehicle was on fire.

The fire was extinguished, and the vehicle was removed. A 24-year-old male operator from New Bedford escaped injury.
