WATCH: Humvee owned by NH's TENNEY Mountain bursts into flames on I-93 in Concord


CONCORD - Remember that traffic snag on Interstate 93 on Thursday? The one where a Humvee caught fire?

Now we know the story behind it.

TENNEY Mountain said the vehicle belonged to them in a Facebook post on Friday. They posted a video of the Humvee in flames, too.

According to the post:

"Long story short, just grabbed a bunch of snow making accessories from our lab storage facility down in Nashua, NH.

While heading back to TENNEY - yellowish smoke started seeping via the engine cowling and within 45 seconds of pulling over the vehicle burst into flames... I managed to get my laptop, iPhone and removed a propane tank out of the back seat prior to the vehicle being engulfed in flames."

So at least we know it could have been worse with that proane tank in the back. That's some quick thinking.

The post said the vehicle had 500k miles on it. A pretty solid life, if you ask us.
