    If it's so dangerous - how come the fire engine has parked all of about 10 feet away from the burning car? :confused:

    We was about 15 meters away... they came from the left side, and stopped dead in the middle of the junction. I could only presume that were stopping the traffic.

    I was just on my way to the Chinese, when I noticed a lot of smoke coming from the bottom of Old Road. It was thick black, and as most bonfire smoke is white or grey, I thought I'd go look.

    At the bottom of the road, by the lights, there was a car with flames pouring out of the hood. I, and another guy, ran over to the car and helped the driver out, to check if he was ok. He was, and the other guy pulled the handbrake on.

    We walked back, and a crowd started to gather. The fire station was called.

    And then, Boom! The whole thing exploded!

    A guy across the road took some pictures, and I asked him to email them to me. So here they are!

    It was on the junction between headington, cowley, shotover and morrel avn.

    It happened on Old Road. If you look at the pictures, you can see a sign for Windmill Road in the backrground on the right!

    You on Old Road then? I wonder if you know the guy who took the pictures. He has a son, who has blonde hair
