A car fire in Evansville forces a mother to pull her three children from the vehicle while in the middle of the roadway.

Officials say the woman was driving south on St. Joseph Avenue when she noticed smoke coming from her engine. When she stopped at the light at St. Joe and Allen's Lane, the engine burst into flames.

Crews were able to get the fire under control quickly and the right lane of St. Joe is back open now.
