More than a few people have remarked on the war-zone-like transformation of Chinese cities during lunar New Year: the deafening pops, the concussions in the night sky, the screeching tail of rockets, urban scorched earth. Most of the time, however, nothing actually blows up.

Around 11 pm Saturday, amid celebrations in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province, a cargo of fireworks ignited inside a Mazda, completely scorching it from the inside-out. Check out the pictures on Sina Weibo. The below compilation is via Wenzhou Grassroots News.
Stay safe out there, folks. Chinese New Year celebrations are a week long.
