A black Chevrolet exploded on Wednesday afternoon, June 22 on South Lee Street near Buford Drive in Buford. Gwinnett County Fire Services Engine 14 responded to the scene and was quickly able to extinguish the vehicle fire.
“Engine 14 responded to a vehicle fire that was secondary to a vehicle accident at this location,” Lt. Ryan McGiboney, a public information officer for Gwinnett County Fire Services said.
A witness to the explosion stated that she had pulled up behind the vehicle and then she noticed flames coming from the vehicle. She said instinct took over and she knew she had to get away from the vehicle. Shortly after she had pulled out of harm’s way, she said the vehicle exploded and that she could feel what she assumes was the shock wave.
According to McGiboney, no injuries were reported and all fire personnel have cleared the scene.
