PESOTUM -- A broken down car sparks a blaze that engulfed a nearby field. It happened on I-57 South, about a mile before Pesotum.

Firefighters were called to a car fire, but when they got there, they realized it was not the car, but the grass next to the interstate. Officials say the car may have backfired.
