MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A car burst into flames just before 3:30 Thursday morning on interstate 240.

A small, four-door car sat off the shoulder of the road, on the  westbound side of the interstate just before the Airways exit.

WMC Action News 5 crews heard things inside the car explode twice in a short time span.

Once Memphis firefighters arrived, they quickly put out the fire.

Crews shut down one lane of traffic at the site of the fire to investigate how it started.

There's no word on if anyone was injured in the fire.
