Never actually seen a car on fire before, was driving to school today when I was turning left onto a road, I was at a stop light, I see a BMW turn around and park with hazards on, ran out, and I saw smoke... Wtf? I get my camera phone out, creep out, and I see a car on fire, so light turns green, I slowly accelerate, and snap this photo. Everyone seemed to get out right away, and right as I got to the next stop light, Fire department was already on route. By the time I left class, it was gone with a burned spot on the pavement.
I gotta say, a bit frightening thing... I am going to get me a fire extinguisher to keep in my trunk or passenger compartment. I hope everything goes well for the owner. I would be devastated if anything like that ever happened to my car.
But... Could this be due to the cruise control? h34r:
Either way... I found this to be an interesting start of the day. I was glad to see everyone got out of the car safely though, and to see people pulling over to help the poor fellow out.
