Car Catches Fire on Interstate

Can you imagine riding in your car, and without warning, it bursts into flames? It happened this morning in Chatham County.

Pooler firefighters say this car was having some sort of engine trouble when it suddenly caught fire on I-16. The driver was able to get out safely, but the car was still in the right lane.

The fire department doused the flames but traffic was tied up for a short time until a crew could remove the car.
