Parked car erupts into flames at Lexington shopping center

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) -- Tense moments for shoppers in the Hamburg shopping center this evening as flames erupted from a parked car.

One of our viewers, Jerry Mills senior sent us this I-witness video.

The Lexington fire department tells us a gray Nissan Maxima caught on fire in the parking lot of Garden Ridge around 6 p.m. Sunday evening.

The fire was quickly put out and they believe the fire resulted from something mechanical or electrical.

The driver of the car said it wouldn't start and the next thing she knew it was on fire.
