ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A scary situation for a van driver Thursday when his vehicle caught on fire.

The man pulled over after he noticed smoke, and then flames coming from the dashboard of the Ford E250 van.

He stopped just north of the intersection of East Circle Drive and County Road 9 around 11:50 a.m. and called 911.

The van belonged to Interstate Battery and there were batteries in the back at the time.

Van damage is estimated around $6,500.  $1,500 worth of batteries also burned in the fire.
