Crap quality video from Feb 22 2007 of a car that burst into flames, with firefighter response, outside a bar in Astoria, Queens. It’s crap quality because it was recorded in the dark of night with a Treo 700p.

All of us standing by were pretty drunk, but not so much so that we couldn’t talk the owner of the bar out of attempting to douse the flames with a bottle of water. Instead he pulled down metal gates so the windows of his place wouldn’t get blown out if the car exploded. Meanwhile we all stood way too close to this little inferno. Driver of the car swore to me he had no idea how or why the car went up in flames like this.
