Los Angeles firefighters responded to a report of a burning auto at a Mission Hills, CA, body shop early on Wednesday, June 26, only to find the flaming vehicle behind a locked security gate.

 

LAFD firefighters used hoses to put water on the blaze through the metal gate and managed to extinguish the fire in about ten minutes, according to a photographer at the scene.

 

They also used a rotary saw to cut the lock and gain entry to the property.

 

There were no injuries.
