EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) Crews respond to a vehicle fire in Eau Claire Sunday.

Video sent to us by a viewer shows it totally engulfed in flames.

The call came in just before 9:00 p.m. to Wisconsin Street at South Farwell Street downtown.

The intersection was blocked off while emergency responders worked to put the fire out.

No one was hurt.

"We're still trying to figure out what caused the fire. We don't know that at this time. We're trying to determine what started the fire, but again everyone was safe. We got the fire extinguished and there's no additional hazards," explains Eau Claire Fire Chief Allyn Bertrang.

The Eau Claire Police Department also responded.

Crews hoped to have the area clear within an hour.
