Early Tuesday morning, a Range Rover owned by former NBA star Penny Hardaway caught fire on Mud Island.

A friend of Hardaway was behind the wheel of the vehicle at the time it caught fire.  The man said he heard the SUV make a funny noise, and pulled over.  When he got out, there was an explosion, and the vehicle went up in flames.

Witnesses said the fire was extremely intense, but firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the blaze.

Hardaway was not in the vehicle at the time.  No one was injured in the fire.

Investigators said the cause of the fire was most likely electrical.
