At Least 2 Dead in Fresno Car Fire

January 6, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
Shields Ave. was closed for nearly five hours.Investigators said when they arrived on scene, the car was on fire.

Neighbors said they heard a loud crash as the car rammed into a tree and burst into flames. At least two people were trapped inside and died at the scene, but crews said the damage is so severe it was hard to tell if there are any more victims.

The coroner will have to identify the bodies using dental records. Neighbors heard the crash but there was nothing they could do due to the high heat from the fire.
