PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Downed power lines caused a car fire in Northeast Portland Saturday morning.

Fire crews responded to the fire on Northeast Sacramento Street near 117th just after 6:30 a.m.

Portland Fire and Rescue said the owner and pet left the car to go inside just minutes before the power lines came down onto the vehicle.

Crews say they were able to put out the fire before it could spread to the nearby house. Pacific Power crews have shut down the power line. Nobody was hurt in the fire.
