Video: Distraught woman speeds into scene, runs over supply line
The woman was upset and trying to recover two guard dogs at the scene of the fire
LOS ANGELES — Video shows LAFD crews battling a gas station blaze when a distraught woman speeds into the scene, driving over the supply line.
According to the video uploader, firefighters had to grapple with heavy smoke and two guard dogs.
About halfway through the video, an upset woman unexpectedly plows into the scene, rolling over the supply line almost to the front of the burning single-story gas station.
Apparently the woman was trying to account for the dog and recover them.
One of the dogs had escaped the fire early on and the other is seen in the video unharmed.
It took firefighters 40 minutes to contain the blaze, none of the gas pumps caught fire.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
