(COLDWATER) – One person was injured when the Bronson Fire Department put out a car fire.

Bronson Fire Chief Scott Wilber says his department was called to put out a vehicle fire around 4 PM Wednesday on U.S. 12 near the Capri Drive In on the west side of Coldwater.

When firefighters arrived, they found the vehicle fully engulfed in flames. The driver and her three children were able to safely get out of the automobile.

Wilber says while they were trying to put out the fire, water came in contact with some magnesium that was used in the car's construction and it exploded.

A captain with the Fire Department received second degree burns to a small area of his neck, which was treated by Life Care Ambulance. Wilber says the injury could have been worse if not for the personal protective equipment his department has, which is due to investments made by the community.
