According to Capt. Matthew Adams, the Independence Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to a car fire on Grayson Parkway last week.
On arrival, crews found a fire under the rear of the car and in the back seat area.
Three fire trucks and 13 firefighters responded and extinguished the fire. Adams says firefighters believe the fire originated due to a transmission line break.
The driver was able to escape the vehicle unharmed.
