Neighbors alerted homeowners who didn't know their car caught on fire early Saturday morning. 

The Phoenix Fire Department was called out to a home near 19th Avenue and Colter Street after calls of a fire at a home. 

Firefighters extinguished a car that caught on fire in the carport. The fire did not extend into the home. 

Firefighters say the homeowners were woken up by a neighbor who rushed to their door to tell them to vacate the home. Those inside were able to safely escape. 

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
