Car Blaze Nearly Brings Down Hollywood, CA Clothing Store

I was at the Starbucks on Melrose Ave. this evening, about 6:00 pm, stepped out to the back alley for a wifi break, and couldn’t help noticing that a white Mustang in a carport nearby was on fire.

The blaze escalated quickly and I crept behind the vehicle to snap this photo. A moment after I turned away, the gas line exploded. I scurried behind a wooden fence.

Fire trucks arrived a couple of minutes later, about the time a column of fire shot upwards and the carport ceiling caught fire.

The blaze was extinguished moments before it could spread to the adjacent clothing shop at the corner of Melrose and Curson Ave. There were no injuries.
