A car is destroyed after being engulfed in flames in Fieldale on Friday morning.
The tires exploded on Route 220 around 7 a.m., according to Skylor Layman with the Fieldale volunteer fire department.
The car was still smoldering an hour later.
Terrie Stovall, a security guard at Eastman, was on her way to work when her car caught on fire. She pulled over on Route 57.
A nurse helped to rescue the driver's belongings, which included a Bible. The nurse fell and had minor injuries.
Stovall says her Pontiac had been leaking oil, but the cause of the fire is not known officially.
