car fire

A trip to see a friend was ruined Thursday afternoon by this car fire on Interstate 40. The driver of the car was on his way from Oklahoma City to visit a friend near Checotah when his car began to smoke. Moments after he pulled it over just west of Henryetta, the engine compartment started blazing. Firemen from Henryetta and Plainview were called to the scene but the vehicle was said to be a total loss.
