This is scary!!

Watch as two firefighters in the New Orleans area attempt to extinguish a car fire on Loyola Drive.

Just as they approach the car to put the fire out, some sort of explosion occurs, thus covering the firefighters in flames.

Luckily they were able to retreat to safety, but not before feeling the effects of the flames. In the video, you can see the lead firefighter's bunker gear still smoking after he retreats to safety.

What a scary situation, but also a good reminder to firefighters to always have your bunker gear when fighting fires.
