A family of three escaped from their burning vehicle on U.S. 287 just east of Wichita Falls.

The blaze occurred at around 5 pm on Sunday. DPS says the driver of the car noticed smoke coming from under the hood and pulled over. The family got out of the car unharmed, but the car was totally destroyed by fire.

The identity of the family was not given, except to say they were from Guatemala. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
