LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A man manages to escape without injury after his car catches on fire while driving around the loop in Lufkin.

The man was driving a red 1990's model Chevrolet Camaro on the loop heading towards Atkinson Drive when he says he saw a red glow coming from the rear of his car. That's when he pulled over in the Century 21 parking lot and jumped out of his car and says it caught fire.

The driver told police that the cause of the fire was potentially from stereo equipment.

Lufkin Fire was called out for a fully involved vehicle fire and firefighters on scene say that they were able to extinguish the fire in about two minutes.
