Car Fire on Spadina

Car Fire on Spadina! Run!

How's this for bizarre story of the evening?

"I was waiting for a streetcar at 6 today at Dundas and Spadina, when I noticed a car parked in the left lane. Smoke poured out, then a few of us noticed the flames. And what did the owner do? He ran away!

Some other dude got a fire extinguisher and put the flames out as I was on the phone to 9-1-1. Two minutes later, fire crews show up and I think they eventually found the guy.

We were all panicking because we didn't know if it was going to blow up at any second."

We're glad to hear she's okay!
