The Miami Beach area has also reported other such incidents of vehicles being trashed by the crowds of spring breaker revelers who have also damaged buildings and other property, got involved in fights, etc. The authorities are speculating that the revelers are not simply typical college students who come to the place for fun. The situation in Miami Beach has been completely out of control.

However, the exact reason for fire on the Dodge Challenger is not yet known. The manhole cover below the Challenger could also be a possible reason for the fire as exploding utility hole covers are a thing that do exist.
