Woman escapes smoky car before it catches fire

Audi totaled after apparent electrical fire

SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio woman escaped her smoke-filled car before it burst into flames Monday morning.

The fire started just after 8:30 a.m. in a parking lot in the 7400 block of Blanco Road, north of Loop 410.

Nancy Moir said she was on her way to a doctor's appointment when she noticed smoke coming into the car through the air vents.

"The smoke started coming all in while I was inside the vehicle," she said. "(I) got out in time and the windows started popping."

She said the car was in flames a few seconds later.

Moir said she tried to park the car away from other vehicles, but there was one car next hers that was significantly damaged.

Her Audi was totaled, but no one was hurt.

Firefighters said it looked like an electrical problem caused the fire.
