Person Found in Burning Car in Orlando

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on September 19, 2018

A car fire in the city of Orlando resulted in one person being hospitalized on Friday, September 14th. It was around 4:40 in the afternoon when the first reports of a car fire began to reach the emergency response crews working within this part of Orange County. Fittingly, the Orlando Fire Department was first to reach the scene, and it is believed that this crew began to battle the flames shortly after the call reached them regarding the emergency. It is not, however, known just how long after the fire started that the emergency services were first contacted.

The burning car, a Chrysler sedan, was located along 7015 S. Semoran Boulevard, and while the firefighters were working to extinguish the blaze police working within Orange County began to speak to witnesses in the area to try and ascertain just what happened to cause the incident in the first place. At least one of these witnesses claimed that shortly before the fire began they heard an explosion, and, although it is not verified that the explosion did indeed come from the burning car, it does seem likely that the two incidents are connected in some way.

Members of the Orlando Fire Department worked diligently to put out the fire, and soon the flames were almost completely gone. It was at this point that one of the firefighters noticed that there was a person sitting inside of the car. No information exists as to why the individual inside of the Chrysler was not noticed earlier, and all we know is that as soon as they were spotted they were rescued by medical personnel working with the other emergency response teams.

Somehow, the person sitting within the car survived the blaze and the high-powered jets of water, and they were rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center. Admitted as a trauma alert, it is not known what the condition of the individual is at the time of this writing. Additionally, no information exists on the identity of the person within the car.

This is the second time over the course of a month that a person has been discovered within a burning car in the city of Orlando. The first, which we reported on in this blog, was found dead near a miniature golf course owned by Disney.
