WESTPORT, CT (WFSB) -

Westport firefighters said a car burst into flames after it drove into a pole early Saturday night.

Around 12:30 p.m. the car crashed in the area of 485 Post Road East.

The driver was able to escape the car before the fire began.

Firefighters said multiple engines responded to the fire, which had fully engulfed the car.

It was quickly put out and did not spread to power lines.

Post Road East was closed for multiple hours. The road has since been reopened and power in the area has been restored.
