Teens Heading to Prom Escape Limo Before it Bursts Into Flames

Natick Police(NATICK, Mass.) --  A group of Massachusetts teenagers en route to their prom Friday were forced to bolt from their limousine, just before it burst into flames.

The group of ten teens from Natick -- a town about 20 miles west of Boston -- had just been picked up in their rented stretch limousine when the driver spotted smoke in the vehicle.

"I saw smoke between the dashboard and windshield," Yasir Sati told ABC Boston affiliate WCVB. "I tried to figure it out, and then the smoke started to come quick. I pulled over and just told everyone to get out."

The teens quickly left the vehicle, and within minutes, it was engulfed in flames.

 Natick Police told ABC News the teens were not injured. They also made it to their prom.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the flames, but they were forced to re-extinguish them after the limo re-ignited when it was taken to a tow lot, according to WCVB.

The cause of the fire remains unknown.
