      Car engulfed in flames as family escapes with their lives

      The family of four safely got out of the vehicle during the fire

      It was a close call as a family of four escaped from their vehicle after it was engulfed in flames.

      The Rio Hondo Police and Fire Department responded to the scene around 8 p.m. near the intersection of Ebony Avenue and Reynolds Street.

      The car was destroyed by the fire.

      No injuries have been reported at this time.

      Rio Hondo police told Action 4 News that the family had just filled the vehicle up with gas.

      The full tank of gas may have been a factor to the cause of the fire.

      The exact cause of the incident is still under investigation.
