Traffic was backed up for several miles this weekend after a vehicle fire in Lincoln County.
The incident happened on Highway 51 Saturday afternoon at just before 4pm. When deputies and firefighters arrived at the scene the vehicle was fully engulfed.
The teenage driver was the lone occupant in the vehicle and was able to get out of the car safely.
Officials closed down the northbound lanes of traffic as the fire was being extinguished. The initial investigation indicated the fire began in the engine compartment of the vehicle.
