Officers with the Pomona Police Department were in pursuit of a driver Thursday night suspected of stealing a vehicle.

The driver of the white sedan led authorities in a chase on the northbound 71 Freeway.

Aerial footage from Sky5 showed flames coming from the bottom of the vehicle, when the driver, a female, pulled over, exited the car, along with a male passenger, and started running on the shoulder of the freeway.

Authorities quickly caught up to the pair and took them into custody on the northbound 71 Freeway just north of Chino Avenue in Chino Hills.

Traffic on the northbound 71 Freeway was shutdown as CHP and the fire department worked to extinguish flames from beneath the car that spread to the vehicle’s interior.
