LANGPORT, England – It was supposed to be a routine demonstration by the local fire brigade of how to put out a car fire.

It turned out to be anything but a routine when the flaming car starting moving forward on its own.

Video of the bizarre event was posted on YouTube earlier this week.

The caption on the video said it was recorded at the Somerset Steam and Country Show which is held near Langport England.

“They were trying to demonstrate how the fire brigade deals with fires but it went a bit wrong,” said the poster.

In the video as the fire burns the car suddenly lurches forward rolling toward the crowd gathered to watch.

Eventually a nearby fire truck moves in and firefighters encircle it.

Several people can be seen running to the hood of the car and trying to get it to stop rolling.

Once the car comes to a halt firefighters begin spraying it with their hoses and the fire is ultimately doused.
