I was waiting for the landlord of the apartment i may be renting soon here to show up and show me the place. While i was in front of the building a saab pulled up first he was going to park in front of me but changed his mind and parks on the opposite side. After 5 minutes of waiting I noticed something dripping from underneath his car I thought to myself "must be coolant" no biggie. 2 minutes go buy and I start seeing sparks falling instead of the "coolant" and instantly I knew it wasn't coolant it was gas which some how caught on fire. So I Ran out called 911 and video taped the ordeal.

First time ever experiencing something like this. Pardon my grammer. And how i sound in the video lol.

that guy's gonna be angry when they investigate and find it was started by his cigarette and he gets no insurance money... you should have waited before calling :rofl:

my guess is the "dripping" you saw was melted carpet.
