Munoz said it was a neighbor returning from a hospital that first reported the fire.

“He noticed a little smoke. He wasn’t quite sure what he was seeing. Then he saw flames and that’s when he said,’Oh my God, the car’s on fire,” Munoz said. “As soon as he hung up with 911, he knocked on all the doors and woke everybody up so got everybody out.”
