Anchorage firefighters safely extinguished a vehicle fire near a building in Muldoon Sunday, according to local police.

APD spokesperson Dani Myren says the fire, near the Liberty Tax Service office at 322 Muldoon Rd., caused neither any injuries nor damage to the building. Myren also confirms that no road closures were caused by the incident.

"They were able to address the fire without affecting traffic," Myren said.
