Another car fire was put out by fire crews on the Cuesta Grade Sunday afternoon.

The fire was called in at about 11 a.m., at an estimated 100 yards from Cuesta Summit.

California Highway Patrol says the engine unexpectedly caught fire, and officials are still determining the cause. The fire started pretty close -- if not in the same place -- as a previous car fire, however, CHP says there is no relation to the previous incident. 

Fire crews were able to arrive on scene quick enough to put out the flames before they could spread to the hill and grassy areas.

Traffic on the northbound lanes were temporarily impacted. The lanes were clear within a couple of hours.
