A Smart Car caught fire on Monday night in the Burlington Coat Factory parking lot, and the pictures of the remnants of that vehicle are quite fascinating!

I can't imagine coming out of a store to find my vehicle completely engulfed in flames!  The owner must have been floored.

Within a few seconds of the Lafayette Fire Department personnel arriving, the fire was extinguished!  Good job, y'all!

Looks like there's not much left to that smart car!

I don't know what started the fire, but am very curious to find out!  Do you know how it started?  If so, let us know.

A passer-by took a video of the fire.  The video is taken portrait-style (instead of landscape-style), and it contains some language my mother wouldn't like, so turn the sound down to watch it if you are easily offended or if you have little ones around.

And, for future reference, TAKE YOUR VIDEOS LANDSCAPE-STYLE!!  Not that it's a pet peeve of mine or anything, but yes: landscape, please.
