Investigators say a mechanical problem may be behind a fire that destroyed a car in south Reno late Friday morning.

Flames destroyed the car on the southbound offramp from I-580 to South Virginia Street about 11AM September 16, 2016. The driver got out before flames broke out and is not hurt.

The fire briefly led to the blockage of the ramp to other traffic.
