Grand Junction, Colo. (AP) Damage is estimated at about $25,000 after a weekend blaze that burned two vehicles in Grand Junction.

Authorities say the fire broke out 2:20 Saturday afternoon while the driver of a Chevrolet Silverado pickup was shopping inside the Mesa Mall.

But the flames also ignited a Toyota Avalon parked next to it, near a bank.

Fire Department Spokesman Mike Page says the fire started inside the cab of the Silverado, probably as a result of some type of wiring problem.

The pickup sustained about $10,000 damage, but the Toyota had about $15,000 damage.

The names of the vehicle owners haven't been released.
