Crazy! Gowanus Lounge posted this video of a car on fire in the Greenwood Heights section of Brooklyn. The video shows the FDNY extinguishing the fire, and GL followed up with an eyewitness account from Greenwood Heights resident Aaron Brashear (who's also in the Concerned Citizens of Greenwood Heights).

Brashear said when he looked outside, some teenage girls were yelling, "*Oh, sh*t, that's our car*!" He added that another "long time resident swore it was an 'insurance job,' since the car went up so." A few years ago, high gas prices were prompting some California residents to torch their SUVs (report the car missing, set car on fire). And after the riots in France, Slate explained how to set a car on fire.

Burned out cars are a common sight around the city.
