CHARLES CITY (KWWL) -

The Charles City Fire Department says a man was hurt last night after his vehicle started on fire. Crews were called to a home in the 1200 block of Waller Street in Charles City around 7:00 last night.

Investigators say there was a gas leak that let fuel vapors get into the car, which caused the vehicle to stall; once the driver tried to start the car again, the vapors inside the passenger compartment ignited.

The driver was taken to the Floyd County Medical Center in an ambulance; information about his condition isn't being released at this time.

Investigators say there was significant damage to the inside of his car.
