Witnesses at the scene said that the driver stated to 911 Responders that she, approximately 3 kids and a dog all jumped out of the car after hearing a weird “popping sound” followed by overwhelming fire from the engine compartment.  The driver put the car in park and everybody evacuated to safety.  The car wasn’t running right after recently refueling.  The driver was en route to see the mechanic down Stover Road when the fire occurred.

No injuries were reported.

Hot Springs Police Officer Caldwell assisted as needed.

Holcomb’s Transport & Recovery took charge of and removed the vehicle from the scene.

Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 40 minutes.
