Raw video: One stubborn car fire in Whitehall, Pennsylvania.

This looks a lot like one of those trick birthday candles that you can't blow out. It is actually a Mercedes Benz burning in Whitehall, Pennsylvania yesterday. Here's the description from Bill Rohrer at Newsworking.org:

Whitehall Engines 2,11, 12 and Rescue 8 respond to a Mercedes-Benz on fire. Chief 16 (Benner) arrives and finds the car well-involved.

The Ethanol-laced gasoline that the Mercedes-Benz was filled with posed a problem for the firefighters. 4 lines were used and one was equipped with a ProPak. It took a few extra minutes to get the fire extinguished.
