Katie Holmes Narrowly Escapes Injury In Car Fire


Actress Katie Holmes narrowly escaped injury on the set of her upcoming movie, "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," in Victoria, Australia over the weekend.

Holmes was shooting a scene inside a car when the vehicle's battery exploded -- sparking smoke and fumes -- before the car then caught fire.

The exploding battery was not a part of the film.

In the Miramax film (a remake of a 1973 ABC Made-for-TV movie), the wife of Tom Cruise plays a woman stalked by evil gnomes.
