It happened about 1:30 a.m. Friday in the driveway of a home on the 300 block of Cromwell Court on Lafayette's south side.
The GMC Yukon hybrid is totaled.
Firefighters said when they arrived, it was fully engulfed. The flames were so strong, they caught a bush on fire near the garage as well as melted the siding above the garage door.
Firefighters said the owner arrived home more than four hours earlier and hadn't noticed that anything was wrong.
