Four students from Southern High School were on the way to their state playoff game against Fuquay-Varina Friday evening when their car caught fire.

Firefighters were able to stop the fire from spreading to the trunk, which contained the football gear.

No one was hurt, but the car was a complete loss. Parents came to the scene and took the players to the game.
