HAWTHORNE, NJ - Late Sunday morning, emergency responders received a call reporting a burning car at Washington Avenue and Diamond Bridge Avenue within sight of St. Anthony's Roman Catholic Church.  The vehicle's engine had caught fire and the front end was completely destroyed.  No injuries were reported and the fire was brought under control.  Firefighters inspected the vehicle using instruments to determine whether or not there were additional "hot spots", particularly around the wheel wells.
