She made it out OK, though her house was burned. Sounds like she was pretty lucky overall.
Maria Schweikert said she was in her garage getting ready to leave her home at 9:30 a.m. in the 300 block of Zephyr when she heard an explosion underneath her vehicle.
"The car exploded," Schweikert said.
Thinking her garage was on fire, Schweikert tried to back her car out, but then she realized it was her car that was on fire.
Schweikert ran inside to call for help, but the telephones weren't working, all the while flames were spreading inside her home.
