Access to the Mauna Kea Observatories was closed temporarily Thursday morning after a rental vehicle burst into flames.
Viewers Jason Shipes and Kenny Epps sent in video showing the SUV completely engulfed by fire.
Officials say it happened shortly after 9:30 a.m. and fire crews extinguished the flames nearly an hour later.
According to the general manager, the vehicle belonged to a couple from California who got out to take pictures and noticed it smoking.
No one was hurt, but the SUV is a total loss.
No word on what caused the fire.
