    Boston Mayor Marty Walsh helped stop a driver from driving with their car on fire while on his own way home Tuesday evening after the Patriots parade.

    Walsh told reporters that after wrapping up city business, he got on Interstate 93 southbound and happened to notice a nearby car had sparks coming from the front wheel.

    He was able to get the driver to pull over and call for emergency services.

    The driver "knew something was wrong, he didn't know what it was, I don't think he fully knew the engine started to go on fire," Walsh said on Wednesday.
