West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A big scare for a driver near the lagoons in West Fargo.

His truck caught fire shortly before 4 this afternoon.

Firefighters say the driver noticed a problem with the engine or catalytic converter, then pulled over.

He quickly escaped and his entire vehicle went up in flames.

Fire crews say they were able to put everything out in about 20 minutes, and are lucky it did not spread to the nearby dry ditch.

Kendel Frost- West Fargo Fire Captain: “The truck pretty much had all the tires were burning. The interior was pretty much gone and the engine. The engine compartment was fully involved, too, so it was pretty much a fully involved vehicle at the point in time we got here.”

The driver is safe and did not have any injuries.
