I was on my way to work@ 0730 hrs, traveling on I 294 N/B, at a speed of approx 45/50 mph when I heard a loud pop. As I attempted to reduce my speed, to move out of the flow of traffic, I noticed my brakes were no longer functioning. I pulled the hand brake up, which did not respond, I pushed it down and pulled it up a second time, which barely slowed my vehicle, but did allow me to coast to a slow stop on the shoulder. At this time, the hood of the vehicle was engulfed in flames. I exited the vehicle and a man who had been traveling behind me, pulled over to say that he had seen flames coming from my tail pipe, before the engine compartment burst into flames. I immediately called 911. I waited in the rain for Illinois State Police and the Fire Dept to respond. State Police Report #IL 0229900 was made upon the Troopers arrival.

Update from Jun 30, 2018: I am filing a complaint with Dodge
