Car Catches Fire in the Middle of an Apartment Parking Lot

Posted by Chris O' Rourke on Jan 2, 2019

Parking lot safety is always a concern for apartment
residents and property managers. Loiterers, vandals and other unwanted visitors
could be lurking behind cars, waiting to make their move on innocent people.
Sometimes even more unexpected activity can occur.

In a previous ‘Catch of the Month’, our trained security
operators saw a car burst into flames at a Wichita, Kansas multifamily
apartment complex.

In a span of just minutes, the car went from a light smoke
to full-on flames. It appeared that
residents attempted to put out the fires on their own, however, their efforts
were unsuccessful. Stealth’s security operators called the local fire
department, who arrived and extinguished the flames.

In the next video, a group of men shot fireworks throughout
the multifamily apartment parking lot, as well as other areas of the property.
One of the flares ignited some vegetation. Our operators called the local fire
department who arrived and extinguished the flames before they could cause
additional damage.
