The incident which happened in the the town of Velikiye Luki in Pskov Oblast in West Russia, occurred when the driver had a leaking gas canister in the vehicle.

When she went to light her cigarette, the naked flame ignited the gas and caused a massive flame that engulfed the vehicle.



The green car, a Citroen Xsara, was being filmed by a driver in a vehicle travelling behind it in the right-hand lane through a residential area.

Apart from veering slightly to the right, the Citroen is being driven as normal until fire appears to come out of the side windows and underneath the vehicle.

The Citroen driver immediately stops the car across the lane and jumps out, allowed the flames to engulf the inside of the vehicle.

She can be heard screaming and seems to have smoke coming off her back, but otherwise appears to be uninjured.

The driver in the car behind rushes to help her, as the fire continues to ravage the green Citroen, orange flames climbing higher and black smoke billowing from the interior of the car.

Traffic continues to pass on the left side of the road, but the driver filming the incident gets into his vehicle and reverses a safe distance away from the fire.

The shocking incident unfolds in less than three minutes.
