Parked car bursts into flames in the East Village

A parked car burst into flames in the East Village on Tuesday, fire officials said.

The roadside inferno occurred at East Houston and Pitt streets in Manhattan around 9:10 a.m. and was captured on video, which was posted to Twitter.

“Car explosion on Ave C/Houston. That was an alt side of the street parking so praying no one got hurt,” according to the tweet.

No one was in the blue four-door vehicle at the time, and there were no injuries, officials said.

They said liquid was leaking from the car before the fire and that the incident is not being considered suspicious.

Three FDNY units and 13 firefighters responded to the scene and put out the blaze, officials added.
