The Dubuque County Sheriff's Office and two fire departments responded to a vehicle on fire Monday afternoon.

According to a news release, at about 4:10 p.m. deputies and firefighters from Epworth and Centralia went to a home at 15813 Red Maple Drive and found the vehicle on fire.

34-year-old Brian Hauber told investigators he had parked the vehicle in front of the residence and gone inside. A short time later, a neighbor told him the vehicle was on fire.

Firefighters were able to put the fire out, but not before it caused about $50,000 in damage to the vehicle, owned by Great Sounds Audio, and its contents.

The fire also caused about $50,000 fire, smoke and water damage to the residence.

Firefighters have not yet determined what caused the fire. There were no injuries reported.
