Van catches fire early Friday

TOLEDO -- A van caught fire early this morning. Police tell us the driver was having engine trouble and was actually pouring gasoline into the engine of this van as he was driving.

Crews think the vehicle backfired, igniting the gas can. We are told the driver was trapped in the burning car by his seat belt. A friend who was following behind him ran over to pull the guy out.

The man was hospitalized in unknown condition.
