Actor Dick Van Dyke was pulled from his burning sports car Monday afternoon after it caught fire on Highway 101 in Calabasas, according to California Highway Patrol officials and his personal Twitter account.

Although the agency did not identify Van Dyke by name, he and his wife both tweeted photos of the scorched vehicle.

"He's fine thank God!!" Arlene Van Dyke wrote.

Two off-duty nurses apparently went to the aid of the driver, according to the Highway Patrol log.

Two eastbound lanes of the freeway were briefly closed.
