It's still unknown what caused a fire that destroyed a car just east of Jasper on Sunday morning.

Tyreese Collins of Jasper said he was headed east on Highway 190, about five miles east of Jasper in a 1999 Buick Sedan, when the vehicle began to loose power and caught on fire. Collins said he immediately pulled over to the shoulder of the highway and removed his children from the car and took them to a safe distance. The incident occurred shortly before noon.

The volunteers of the Jasper Fire Department were dispatched to the location and extinguished the blaze. However, the car was a complete loss.
