Glyndon, MN (WDAY TV) - A joy ride turned dangerous for young adults in Glyndon and fire crews. Crews tell us one of the passengers noticed smoke in the back end of the vehicle; it turns out it was much more than that. Fire torched the vehicle. Some parts of a vehicle can rupture in fires because of the heat.

A front strut rocketed out of the vehicle while crews were putting out the flames. It narrowly missed fire crews. Crews were delayed in getting to the car because of a train.

Bob Cuchnag – Glyndon Fire: “The person that was driving felt it was something electrical for his sub-woofers. It must have been a very substantial stereo system, not sure about that. It would be impossible to tell at this point. It started somewhere in the back end. That’s all we can tell.”

The car is a total loss.
