A Jaguar burst into flames on the side of a San Diego highway in Mission Valley Monday.

Four people escaped injury when the car they were riding in caught fire and burned around 10:30 p.m. on the southbound 15, north of Friars Road.

The driver said he pulled off the road into a gas station after the car began making a clicking noise. He checked the oil and added some to the car then got back on the highway.

“The check-engine light lit on and 20 minutes later it caught on fire back by where the battery was. So I pulled over and within two minutes it just burst into flames,” the driver told NBC 7 San Diego.

The driver said he had just finished his laundry so everything he owned was in the car.

No one was injured.
