Men escape as car bursts into flames on I-5 in Federal Way

Two men escaped injury Tuesday after they jumped out of their car moments before it burst into flames in Federal Way.

They were driving about 3 a.m. on southbound Interstate 5 at state Route 18, heading home from playing a music gig, when they smelled something burning.

“We start smelling something, then we stopped, then a lot of fire," said the driver, Pedro Sasco.

They pulled over and safely jumped out before the car exploded in flames.

Firefighters had the scene cleared in about half an hour.
