Car On Fire at Canadian Tire

An old GMC minivan unexpectedly caught fire on the parking lot of the Canadian Tire at Macleod Trail. All happened pretty fast – there was a loudspeaker announcement and people run outside. Parked next to the fireball pulled off, and some of them got blocked by a scared jerk on a huge SUV which was standing further but wanted to get-out-itis and stuck the traffic. Otherwise everything was smooth. Fire crews arrived in a couple of minutes (literally!) and put down the flames. There was a couple of light explosions – probably the tires of the van. People were first scared, than curious. Poor new Infinity which was standing next to the van got burned, the owner was desperate. Later even the paramedics arrived, no idea why.
