Marthas Vinyard: Moped engulfed in flames

Smokin' down the road

A pair of tourists were examining a map and planning their day's activities Monday, when a fellow traveler alerted them that their rented moped was engulfed in flames. Tisbury fire chief John Schilling said the couple was looking at a map in the turnout near the drawbridge in Vineyard Haven around 1 pm, and was standing away from the vehicle, when an onlooker saw flames leap from the two-seater. The moped, rented from Kings Rental in Oak Bluffs, and all of the couple's personal belongings including a purse, camera and travel gear, were a complete loss. No one was injured, and the cause of the fire is unknown, chief Schilling said. Kings Rental could not be reached for comment.
