WATERLOO (KWWL) -

One person escaped a car fire Sunday night, and weather may be partly to blame.

It happened on Franklin Street in downtown Waterloo, right in front of the Hardee's restaurant around 7:30 p.m.

According to the Waterloo Fire Department, the driver got their vehicle stuck and was trying to get out of the snow.

They're not sure why the fire started, but they believe it could be chalked up to over heating.
