A car bursts into flames in an East Medford neighborhood this afternoon.

Fire crews were called to Fairview Circle around 1:15.

Minutes after the owners of the Cadillac sedan had returned home a neighbor ran over to tell them the car was on fire.

"We came outside and it was on fire, and it blew up, so we called the fire department. But we are just very thankful to God that everybody is safe."

We are told the owners took the car to a mechanic this week to fix a steering wheel issue.

No word on if the incident is related and the cause is still under investigation.
