Shortlly before midnight, the Jeep caught fire on I-80 east of Colfax in the eastbound lanes. The driver got the Jeep to the side of the road, where it went up in flames because of what the California Highway Patrol says was a mechanical issue.

A puppy on board got out safely along with the driver.

KOLO 8 viewer Ryan Bush captured the fire on video.
