I don't recall the back story as to what caused the car to explode. Just goes to show that you can't get complacent on "routine" calls. I did hear that the driver of the semi in the far left lane had his windows open when the explosion happened.
Stay safe.

EXCELLANT! Watch out for plastic fuel tanks! Good video to stress the importance of wearing ALL PPE and using proper size hose line to enable attack from a safe distance. It appears that this may have been the filler and fuel cap failure.Thanks for sharing!

It's a nice training video. Anybody knows what fuelled the explosion?
