A small pickup truck can be seen surrounded by BX Swan Lake volunteer firefighters and covered in fire retardant foam in the video of the blaze yesterday, June 29, sent in by a witness Cari Toews. Traffic around the truck is partially blocked to give the firefighters room to work.

It appears the truck was likely totalled by the fire.
