CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A Jackson man had quite a ride as he drove to a friend's house Friday afternoon in Cape Girardeau.

Thomas Nigro says he was driving his 1996 Chevy Camaro north on Big Bend Road when smoke started coming through the steering column around 3:30 p.m.

He pulled into Roberts Lane, saw the fire in the motor, and got out of the car.

The car is a total loss.

Two fire trucks responded to the scene and put out the fire.
