A black BMW car ignited in flames on Jarvis and Carlton streets on Jan. 31st.

Toronto Fire rushed to the scene after receiving a call at 5:25 p.m. The vehicle exploded twice as Toronto Fire was trying to put out the flames. It took 10 minutes to fully extinguish the flames.

“I thought it was a sandstorm,” said Luke Saeed, a George Brown College student who saw the incident from his apartment. “We looked out and it was all black smoke.”

The cause of the fire is still unclear.
