Taxi fire on Collins Rd.

Drove by this just in time to see it catch on fire. Watch the headlights when the tire blows up! Kudos to the CRFD for getting on scene so quickly.

That is weird how the lights turned on when the tire went, then when they were going back off the left turn signal came on once.

These firefighters need further training! A major safety rule is.... Never cross in front of the burning end of a vehicle. The bumpers can blow off the vehicle. It was good to see the firefighter packed up though!

Scott, that only happens on old (1970s/1980's) vehicles, new vehicles are all plastic

As the firefighter in that video, I was very conscious of the bumper struts. If you notice, after I crossed the front of the car I stayed to the front corner of the car.
