Victoria Fire Department raced to put out a raging fire in a Volkswagen van in the 2300-block ofWark Street in Victoria on Saturday.
Details are still coming in about how the fire started, but the inferno was caught on video by local resident Edd McDonald and posted to Facebook. The van was in the middle of the street at the time and the flames damaged an SUV parked next to it on the street.
Witnesses say the occupants of the van got out as the vehicle began filling with smoke. Someone tried to use a fire extinguisher to put out the fire, but the fire was already too involved for it to have much effect. Fire crews arrived from the nearby Bay Street hall and eventually extinguished the flames, but the inside of the van had already been destroyed.
