BURBANK, Calif. – Fire officials say five people have died after a car spun out and burst into flames early Saturday morning in Burbank, trapping people inside.
Fire Battalion Chief Ron Barone said there was one survivor found about 50 yards from the burning Nissan when police arrived on the scene around 4 a.m. The 19-year-old woman was taken to a trauma center and Barone said she was in serious condition with a broken leg. He said paramedics reported smelling alcohol on her breath.
He said it’s unclear how she got out of the vehicle.
The flames from the fire spread to nearby trees and brush and Barone says they were doused within moments of firefighter’s arriving.
