Tonawanda, NY (WBEN) A Town of Tonawanda Police officer escaped a burning car Thursday afternoon along Delaware Avenue.

At about 1:30 police say Officer Adam Cavarello was on patrol when he noticed smoke coming from the dashboard area inside of his cruiser.
   
He was able to pull over, remove some equipment, and get a safe distance from the car before it became fully engulfed.
   
Traffic was tied up on Delaware Ave, near the 290, but it is now open.
   
The proximity of the where started seems to indicate is was electrical in nature.
