Two people were able to escape their SUV on Tuesday night after it caught fire on Flat Top Road in Ghent.

It happened less than a mile from Winterplace Ski Resort.

The vehicle was fully engulfed when our crews arrived on scene.

The SUV was almost unrecognizable as flames swirled into the air.

There were also some explosions as the vehicle burned, but the flames were put out within an hour.

The Ghent Volunteer Fire Department responded.
