Help!!! My Car is on fire!!!
On a road trip crossing 5 southern states of Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Florida, I and my friend were on our way back to Atlanta, Georgia on I-65 crossing Alabama near Evergreen. There was an accident so we were crawling for a while. After the traffic eased up, I couldn't increase my speed and we decided to stop and take a look. We pulled over and as we parked, we realized there was smoke in the front. We managed to scramble out of the car and realized the car was on fire. We had already lost our cell phone the previous day so we asked the 1st person who stopped to call 911. By the time the fire truck came, our car was completely in flames and we were helplessly watching.
Right next to Mile 89 on I-65 in Alabama we bid goodbye to our Red Suzuki Reno, rented from Enterprise Rental Cars, Athens, Georgia. It was home for the last 6 days.
