A Mexico Public Safety officer stopped a car last night after noticing flames coming out of the bottom of the engine compartment.
The officer stopped the 1999 Pontiac on Agricultural, near Jackson Street, and informed the driver of the problem. The driver noticed increased smoke.
The occupants of the car were evacuated while the officer located and extinguished the blaze.
It was determined pooling oil from a leak had ignited.
The car was towed with very little fire damage. No one was injured.
