WATCH: Chisago County Deputy Hauls Flaming Car Away From Home

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- A close encounter with a car fire was caught on camera by Minnesota law enforcement.

The quick thinking of a Chisago County deputy likely prevented a home from catching fire.

He tried to use a fire extinguisher to put it out. When that didn't work, he grabbed a tow strap from the homeowner, and hauled the car out of there.
