Traffic on Highway 288 near the Beltway was brought to a standstill Friday afternoon during the rush hour when a car caught fire and then exploded.

The explosion was captured on video by a viewer who sent it in through our iWitness Reports. The person was in a vehicle coming up on the burning car when it exploded.

The fire spread to the grassy median and caused big traffic problems in the area.

At this point, we have no word on any injuries or what may have caused the fire.
