jakeeleeband2013600 NBC Bay Area Staff reports:

The California Highway Patrol says all passengers managed to escape from a limousine on fire during rush hour traffic on Interstate 880 in San Jose near Stevens Creek Boulevard.

The fire happened Wednesday evening around 6 p.m.

CHP says six or seven members of a band, identified by officers on the scene as Red Dragon Cartel, were in the back of the limo when the fire broke out.

The band is led by Jake E. Lee, who played guitar in Ozzy Osbourne’s band during the mid-1980s. The group was scheduled to play at the RockBar in San Jose on Thursday night.

San Jose police say the fire happened after the electrical system began to short out.

Some lanes of I-880 were blocked.

    Man, Jake has got to have the worst luck ever.
    – Robbed out of royalties for the Bark at the Moon album;
    – Can’t get any income from Badlands recordings, because the bereaved families of Ray Gillen’s victims will sue;
    – RDC has had more singers than I’ve had hot meals;
    – Ratt’s ongoing dysfunctionality makes a reunion with Jake unlikely;
    – And now this.
    I’m glad I bought the RDC album, and got one for a friend too. It’s the least I could do for the guy.
