Chelsea Fire

Walking home from Chelsea Piers after a fundraiser I saw some Pier employees running out into the road and stopping cars. I then noticed smoke floating down the road and it felt like one of those cartoons where you are looking from the character's perspective, following the trail of smoke back to it's unknown source. Turns out a van was engulfed in flames. As I got closer I also heard the tires popping, followed by the wail of sirens as the FDNY arrived onto the scene. Fortunately no one was hurt... I forget which studio it was, but remember when we all followed 'forehead' in her boyfriend's car going to Kentuck Knob? I remember seeing fire coming out from the underside of that car... worst lead driver ever.
