The driver was performing a burnout - spinning the wheels to create smoke - as part of a gender reveal.

It was driven about 100 meters before it caught fire, with panicked onlookers running to rescue the driver.

The incident shown in the video happened in April 2018, but other failed burnout gender reveals also have taken place.

Police confirmed that no one was injured. Also, it's a boy.
