Though most of the vehicles only sustained minimal damage, footage from 6 ABC shows one car completely engulfed in flames. There were no injuries reported in connection to the fire.

The fire marshal said a mechanical problem with one of the cars started the fire, and the heat from the flames impacted nearby cars.
