Don't worry...I don't know my own name at the end of the day.

Was at the field for flag football playoff practice and the English high game had just ended when the mini van erupted in smoke and then flames, a smart individual grabbed the fire extinguisher from the school bus, I thought it was going to explode but somehow they tamed it before the trucks arrived . Seemed like it took forever for the fire trucks to make it, traffic was backed up. That incident died down and then a bit later the building one street over caught fire and there was a major response.
Grateful for quick reacting indivuduals and our emergency responders. Hoping no one was hurt.

You should certainly be wary around a burning vehicle, but gasoline doesn't explode except under very specific conditions - like those found inside a operating piston chamber.

That's good to know. It was parked close to other cars, were they in danger of catching fire? Just curious....
