KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick Police say an SUV caught fire Wednesday night after experiencing some electrical problems.

Police say while driving, a man turned on his heater and noticed smoke coming from the SUV. He decided to pull over across the street from the 7-Eleven off of West Clearwater Avenue. Officers say shortly after he got out, the SUV went up in flames. Firefighters got to the scene just before 11 p.m. and put the fire out. 

Fortunately, officers say the driver is doing okay. He walked away from the SUV unharmed but they say he did just purchase the vehicle about a couple days before.
