An unoccupied minivan burst into flames in the Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic parking lot Friday evening.
The fire reportedly broke out about 6 p.m. after a woman parked her car in the lot at 990 Price Street, according to a witness at the scene.
"It just kind of started smoking, and then all of a sudden it burst into flames," a clinic employee said.
Crews from Cal Fire and the Pismo Beach Fire Department contained the fire by 6:25 p.m.
The clinic employee said officials used a saw to pop open the hood and put out the fire.
There were no reported injuries or structures threatened during the blaze.
