Monte Carlo 6-cyl

While driving down the road, noticed smoke coming from under hood of my car. Pulled into parking lot, opened hood and seen flames coming out of the engine compartment near the front of the motor. Fire was put out by a service station attendant located across the street. Fire dept and police arrived at scene. Trans line leaked fluid onto header pipe which caused the fire.
