A good Samaritan saves a man from a burning vehicle in Rockford.

It happened on 1st st in Rockford around 2:30 am this morning.

RS Source Shawn A. said he heard a vehicle that was revving its engine. The vehicle then caught on fire. He saw the brake lights on, so he knew the vehicle was occupied. The male victim inside the car was screaming for help. Shawn broke out the window of the vehicle and was able to successfully rescue the man inside the burning car.  The man was transported a nearby hospital, for evaluation.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Kaseniya Kaseniya said:  “South first st. The guy in the car fell asleep with his foot on the the gas peddle. The doors were locked and there was the smoke inside and out, also car was about to explode so guys had to bust the window fest to get him out and so one of the guys got his arm injured. The “victim” walked away mad about his vehicle without injuries. Few more min and all the cars around would be damaged from the explosion”

Note:   While I was working the scene, the Rockford Police came rushing to the scene with lights and sirens, after the fire was already extinguished.  So it is unknown if something else happened at the scene, that I am unaware of.
