Car fire with Explosion

Car Fire with Explosion Found this video posted on Twincitiesfirewire.com.  It’s another car fire video that really hammers home why we should be #jumpseatready at all times.  As the engine arrives  something in the car explodes.  Imagine if this happened when you were near it and didn’t have ALL your PPE on correctly.
