Flames shoot out from under this van parked at Glazier’s Market on Wednesday, October 3. It took firefighters over 30 minutes to put out the fire, as gas was dripping from the fuel tank.
Mark Leckert, from Virginia, had just fueled up at Stage Stop and was shopping for supplies at Glazier’s. Leckert rented the van in Phoenix and was on vacation touring the national parks in the area.
According to initial reports, Kanab City Police Chief Tom Cram said it looks like the refrigerator in the van started the fire. The Kanab City Fire Department extinguished the blaze with foam, because water was just spreading the fire.
