Car bursts into flames at Hilton Head ATM

A car pulling up to a drive-through Bank of America ATM at 20 Hatton Place caught fire on Saturday at about 12:30 p.m., according to Hilton Head Island Fire & Rescue Division officials.

By the time firefighters arrived, flames were shooting out of the car "from one end to the other," battalion chief Charles Steedley said.

The driver escaped and was not injured, Steedley said. Firefighters put out the fire within minutes.

The car was a total loss and the ATM had some heat and water damage. The cause of the fire has not been determined but is not believed to be suspicious, Steedley said.
