A limousine on the way to a prom burst into flames Friday night.

Ten teens were headed to the prom in Massachusetts when flames started shooting from the passenger seat of the limo.

Everyone was able to get out safely.

"It started to get really big and it looked like it was going to explode," Natick High School student Alexander Goudsmit said.

The driver says he tried to put the fire out with his suit jacket as his passengers ran to safety.

The teens were quickly able to catch a ride to prom with another group of students in a trolley.

"It is a happy occasion. I mean, let's clarify. I mean thank goodness, they're going to be at the prom and they're going to have quite the story to tell and you'll have to come up with a different story," Alexander's father Tammo Goudsmit said.
