A frightening scene erupted in an area of Kenner and it was all caught on camera.
John Panzavecchia sent WDSU video of a vehicle fire that was reported on West Loyola Drive. The video starts out with the SUV slowly being engulfed in flames from the passenger side.
At one point, firefighters who were trying to extinguish the fire approached the SUV and then the flames suddenly engulfed them as well.
Fortunately, Kenner fire officials said none of the firefighters were hurt.
Officials believe the SUV’s gas tank ruptured, sparking the blaze.
