-- Surveillance video caught a woman pulling two children from the back seat of a car that was engulfed in flames at a Connecticut gas station.
Two cars burst into flames and several others were damaged after a 70-year-old motorist crashed into a pump, reports WTNH, a local ABC station.
Police and fire crews responded to the fire at around 6:45 p.m. Monday at the gas station, located near Hartford.
Police say the driver crashed into the pump after accidentally hitting the gas instead of the brake, according to WTNH. The impact tipped the pump onto another car and ignited the blaze.
The fire completely burned two vehicles and damaged three others. At one point, the flames grew large enough to char the canopy above the pumps.
Police say everyone had time to evacuate following the crash and that no injuries were reported.
It’s unclear if the motorist will face any charges. An investigation is ongoing, WTNH said.
