world Updated: Jul 29, 2009 01:34 IST

Hollywood actress Katie Holmes narrowly escaped unhurt after a car caught fire on a movie set.

The actress, who is currently in Australia filming "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark", was reportedly shooting a scene in the vehicle when the battery exploded and the actress was left shaken after dashing from the car just before it burst into flames, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"Katie was inside a car when the vehicle's battery exploded. It was sparking smoke and fumes before the car caught fire. The exploding battery was not a part of the film," said a source from the production unit.

A remake of a 1973 TV movie, the film has Holmes playing a woman who is stalked by wicked gnomes.
