Unusual video: FDNY fire truck becomes tow truck. Rig pulls blazing car from atop burning manhole.

Check at about 1:10 in the video above as the FDNY shows a somewhat unique way to handle an automobile fire. The clip above is Part 3 of a citizen’s video as he watched firefighters trial to handle the stubborn fire. The problem, according to the videographer, is that the car was parked on top of a manhole that was burning and exploding. You can hear the small blasts at various points on the video (sounds like a bit of an electrical fire sparking and arcing underground).

There is no date or location posted in the description, but the tags indicate it happened in Queens yesterday. Part 1 is below. Click here for Part 2 and here for Part 4.
