Fire consumes van in Wakefield, Quebec


by admin on June 12, 2010

Lauren McCarron and Mike McKinnel grabbed their three kids and jumped out of their VW van when it suddenly caught fire as they were pulling out of the Depanneur Wakefield Express around 8:20 pm June 11. No one was hurt but the seven-foot high flames destroyed the vehicle and brought out worried onlookers and the La Peche fire department. This video was caught by Wakefielder Bethan Nodwell and supplied to the Low Down.
