A tow truck driver got more than he bargained for after loading a disabled sedan onto the back of his truck on Wednesday.
Flames erupted after he had loaded the car on his truck, eventually engulfing the car in a fiery blaze.
At about 7:15 p.m., a tow truck stopped in the middle lane atop the Seal Beach Boulevard overpass at the 405 Freeway. Flames could be seen inside the passenger compartment of the car.

About five minutes later, the tow truck pulled into the parking lot of the Seal Beach Post Office on Westminster Boulevard as flames engulfed the car. He was soon joined by at least three Seal Beach Police cars, racing up with lights and sirens, and eventually an Orange County Fire Authority pumper truck.
The street filled with white smoke after firefighters began dousing the flames.
