A car erupted in flames around 4:10 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1 in the parking lot behind Larry’s Spirit gas station at Main Street and Fair Drive.
After Susanville resident Amy Wilson saw her sea foam green 1971 Volkswagon Beetle smoking, she pulled in to an abandoned section of a parking lot.
According to Wilson, shortly after she and the other passengers, her friend and two children of the friend, exited the vehicle unharmed, it erupted in flames.
