SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A vehicle burst into flames in front of a Normal Heights home, scorching part of the house and another car parked nearby.

The incident was reported just before 5 a.m. at a home in the 4200 block of Felton Street, near El Cajon Boulevard.

Responding firefighters arrived to find a Land Rover fully engulfed in flames on the driveway and exploding multiple times as they tried to douse it with water.

Flames from the burning vehicle burned part of a car parked in front of it and a section of the home’s garage.

It took about 10 minutes for firefighters to knock down the fire, but the Land Rover was completely destroyed by the blaze.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
