SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The intersection of Whatley Avenue and Victory Drive is now open after a car fire Thursday afternoon.

The fire occurred right in front of the Parker's.

A witness who was at Parker's said he watched the car's exhaust catch on fire. He got out of his truck and ran over to tell the driver.

"I'm lucky to be alive," said driver Benjamin James. "This guy really saved my life."

"I was unloading gas here at the store and saw sparks coming from his exhaust, and I ran over and tapped him on the truck and told him his car was on fire," said witness Ronnie Selph.

The driver got out safely. No one was injured.
