CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Firemen on scene tell us a woman is safe after her truck caught fire while she was driving.

The incident occurred on Edgewood Road in Cedar Rapids near Westdale Mall.

The woman was driving her silver Ford F150 Northbound, when she believes the truck caught fire underneath, firemen said.

Some people were eating in a nearby Culver's when they said they noticed smoke out the window and heard tires popping.

The fire was controlled within just a few minutes as three firemen were able to put it out.

Edgewood road was shut down for about 20 minutes while the fire was taken care of.
