Car bursts into flames on freeway

Firefighters put out a car fire on the side of Interstate 805.

SAN DIEGO — A car fire on Interstate 805 slowed traffic through the City Heights area Monday morning.

The car burst into flames at around 11:30 a.m. for unknown reason on the side of northbound ramp from I-805 to the 15 freeway.

SkyFOX was over the scene as firefighters worked to put it out. They blocked the far right lane of the freeway, causing traffic to back up throughout the area. It took them about 20 minutes to extinguish the flames. All lanes were cleared by noon.

No one was injured in the blaze.
