WEAR Reporter’s Car Catches Fire Before Live Shot About Florida Snow

WEAR_CarFireJust before WEAR reporter Christina Leavenworth went live for a story about a local man making his own snow in the unusually cold Florida temperatures, her 2011 VW Jetta caught fire.

“When I was driving I started to smell some smoke so I started googling what was going on once I pulled over,” said Leavenworth. “Then I saw flames. Tried to put water on it. We quickly called 9-1-1.”

Firefighters showed up and put the fire out. It was so cold that the water they used to douse the flames turned to ice.

“But on a lighter note,” said Leavenworth. “Hey! There’s snow!”
