Police and fire units are currently on the scene of a vehicle fire just south of the intersection of Hooper Avenue and College Drive, police spokesman Ralph Stocco said. 

Carol Laconte, of New Castle Drive, Toms River was traveling north on Hooper Avenue in a 2003 Kia Sedona when her vehicle began to smoke, Stocco said, and she immediately puled to the side of the road.

Members of the Silverton Fire Company responded to extinguish the fire, which appears to have been electrical in nature, Stocco said.

The incident is being investigated by Toms River Patrolman Austin Pelka and the Tons River Bureau of Fire Prevention.
