Oak Bluffs firefighters put out a car fire on Massasoit Street Monday morning, near Our Lady Star of the Sea church.

Police diverted traffic around the area beginning at 10:30 am when the fire began. Police opened the streets again about an hour later.

Firefighters sprayed foam to extinguish the fire in the engine compartment of a white Volkswagen Jetta parked on the street.

Flames also scorched a Honda Accord parked in front of the Jetta.
