YAKIMA, Wash. -- A couple in West Valley escaped serious injuries Wednesday afternoon when their car blew up inside their garage and started a fire.

The man said it looked like a scene from a movie when his car blew up after he started it. 

Flames destroyed the garage and caused smoke and water damage to the duplex.

A neighbor on the other side of the building says she was woken up by the flames.

"I grabbed my two dogs out of the house and woke my husband up because we were both asleep. And I have birds in the house, but they're alright. But yeah, it was scary there for a moment when you have ten foot flames coming out of your neighbor's garage," said neighbor Jeanette McIlhone.

Investigators don't know why the car caught fire.
