Marv Stommel’s evening did not go as planned.
The Kenai resident stopped at the McDonald’s on the Kenai Spur Highway for dinner Wednesday evening and found himself digging through the charred remains of his truck less than an hour later.
His gray GMC had been parked next to a late-model Lincoln MKS that caught fire while its occupants were inside the restaurant.
“I pulled up next to it, went inside, went in the bathroom, came out and ordered my order, all of the sudden people were screaming,” Stommel said. “I looked out any my car was on fire.”
