Car catches fire after trying to climb snow-covered hill

Authorities are looking into why a car caught fire this afternoon.

Firefighters were called to the car at the intersection of Cheyenne Boulevard and Lief Court around 2:30 afternoon.

A car trying to climb the snow-covered hill onto Lief caught fire about halfway up.

"It seems like the car overheated maybe when making its way up the icy hill. When you car starts smoking exit the car," said SCFD Nick Roth.

The driver of the car was the only person inside and she got out safely without injury.

The official cause of the fire is still under investigation.
