Posted: Updated:

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- A driver heading down the highway pulled to a stop when he realized his car was on fire.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. on Saturday on Highway 69 near Shaffer Road.

The driver was heading south from Denison and pulled over when he saw smoke and flames coming out of the hood. He got some water to try and douse the engine, but it was no use.

The fire grew and soon engulfed the front of the car. Bystanders stopped to try to help and watched the car burn.

A Bells fire truck soon arrived, and the fireman was quickly sprayed the burning grass near the car, before putting the car fire out.  No one was hurt.
