PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A van went up in flames Friday at a Tigard Fred Meyer parking lot.

And the chaotic scene was caught on camera in video submitted to YouTube and an image uploaded to Reddit.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue reports a family was heading to the coast for the Labor Day weekend when they smelled something burning. They pulled into the parking lot and got out — right before it went up in flames.

Once fire crews arrived the fire was quickly brought under control.

No one was injured.
